Hello,
as I know at this time the page numbering is not working in Excel export.

I've a Textbox like with this expression "=PageNumber + ' / ' + PageCount" and when I export to Excel I've the text "1/1" on every page.

I'd like to keep the page numbering in other format so I don't want to remove it from my report.

Do you have a solution to remove it from Excel and keeping it in other format ?

It would be helpfull to have a parameter (in rendering parameters) to tell telerik reporting to ignore or not display or not render the field with PageCount or PageNumber when exporting to Excel.

Regards
Gilles

Hello Gilles,

By default page headers and footers would not be shown in exported Excel file, but would be only visible when printing. Since Excel is not a page oriented format, it has no concept of physical pages, but creates logical ones when forced to print. That is why we believe it is not a good idea to print from excel, but from a fully blown page oriented format like PDF.
Still we have verified your claim and would see if we can address it for subsequent release. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Best wishes,
Steve
