    Displaying my data in my grid i used few templated column.
    They are gather mutiple field and display them nicely. Like : Name - Surname
    But for my Exel Export , I need to split those information into 2 column.
    To apply filter in exel ect..


    <telerik:GridTemplateColumn UniqueName="PRD_exp" Exportable="true"
                        HeaderText="Info1<br/>Info2" >
            <%#((myDataTYPE)Container.DataItem).Info1 %>
            <%#((myDataTYPE)Container.DataItem).Info2 %>

    So my EXEL Export i want those information to be in different column.
     So i have set my Templated Column to Exportable="false" , and create hidden Column set visible="false" for each data in each Templated Column.
     Like this:
    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Info1" UniqueName="Info2"
                      Exportable="true"  Visible="false" />
    <telerik:GridBoundColumn DataField="Info2" UniqueName="Info2"
                      Exportable="true"  Visible="false" />

    What is the simpliest way to achieve this ?

    Hello Pierre,

    In order to export the hidden columns in RadGrid you can use the Display property to hide them. When the data being exported you need to set Display to true. Check out the following thread that discusses the approach:
