Hi,

I have Performance Issues with the Excel spreadprocessing export. I just migrated an Excel export that used until now the libraries "Component One". The export takes now 30 seconds for 7221 rows and 88 columns, against 5 seconds before. Here is the code:

001.        ... Fill the table...
002.        Using excBook As New Workbook
003. 
004.            excBook.SuspendLayoutUpdate()
005.            Using (New UpdateScope(
006.                Function() (excBook.History.IsEnabled = False),
007.                Function() (excBook.History.IsEnabled = True)))
008. 
009.                Dim excSheet As Worksheet                     
010.                excSheet = excBook.Worksheets.Add()
011.                excSheet.Name = tbl.TableName
012.                fill_ExcelSheet(tbl, excSheet)
013. 
014.            End Using
015.            excBook.ResumeLayoutUpdate()
016. 
017.            'Save the Excel-File
018.            Dim formatProvider As Telerik.Windows.Documents.Spreadsheet.FormatProviders.IWorkbookFormatProvider _
019.                = New Telerik.Windows.Documents.Spreadsheet.FormatProviders.OpenXml.Xlsx.XlsxFormatProvider()
020. 
021.            Using fsOutput As New FileStream(strFilename, FileMode.Create)
022.                formatProvider.Export(excBook, fsOutput)
023.            End Using
024. 
025.        End Using

142.    Catch ex As Exception
143.        show_AppErrorMsgBox(ex)
144.    End Try
145.    Return bolOK
146.End Function

 

The code that takes the most time is:

 - Lines 42 - 77: Fill the sheet with data: 12 seconds
 - Line 122: AutoFitWidth(): 6 seconds --> (It's important, cannot be removed)
 - Line 22: formatProvider.Export(excBook, fsOutput): 11 seconds --> That's very long !!!

Can you check my code and tell me if there are any improvements, please? So i can unfortunately not use the libraries.

Thanks in advance

Hello S├ębastien,

We investigated the code and it seems that there is nothing wrong with it - just the large data set creates large document model which needs more time and memory to be processed. 

For cases like this, we provide RadSpreadStreamProcessing, which provide many times better performance as it doesn't keep the model in the memory (the content is written directly to the zipped XML stream), but the AutoFitWidth feature is not supported there. 

Regards,
Boby
