Looks like if I want to export to excel I first need to bind radgrid and load to  the page and then the user does something to initiate the download.

I am trying to do the bind and export in one event. Thats why I didn't add my grid to the page, I just wanted to leverage its ability to export the data for me. I don't plan on my user ever seeing a bound radgrid.

Is something like this possible? 
public void RunReport_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    //bind a radgrid in code behind
    //export the radgrid to excel when its done binding

Please advise.

My data has dynamic column. I use dynamic query. The code I'm using is
       private void BuildReport(string @SpecID)
            RadGrid gvTemp = new RadGrid();
            int db = (int)CommonFunctions.CurrentDatabase();
            DateTime StartDate = UIStartDate.SelectedDate.Value;
            DateTime EndDate = UIEndDate.SelectedDate.Value;

            using (STS32Entities ctx = new STS32Entities())
                SqlConnection caConn = new SqlConnection(CaConn);
                SqlCommand caCmd = new SqlCommand("CreateDynamicQuery", caConn);
                caCmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                caCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@DB", db));
                //caCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@SeqNo", SeqNo));
                //caCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@DataVrsn", UIDataVersion.SelectedItem.Text));
                caCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@SpecID", SpecID));
                caCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@DateType", UIEventType.SelectedValue));
                caCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@StartDate", StartDate.ToShortDateString()));
                caCmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EndDate", EndDate.ToShortDateString());
                caCmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter("@HarvestCode", UIHarvestCode.Checked));

                SqlDataReader caRdr = caCmd.ExecuteReader();

                gvTemp.DataSource = caRdr;
                //Download.Enabled = true;
            gvTemp.ExportSettings.IgnorePaging = true;
            gvTemp.ExportSettings.FileName = "DQRecords";
            gvTemp.ExportSettings.OpenInNewWindow = true;
            gvTemp.ExportSettings.Csv.FileExtension = "xls";
            gvTemp.ExportSettings.Csv.ColumnDelimiter = GridCsvDelimiter.Comma;
            gvTemp.Visible = false;

Hi Gauri,

If you want to create an Export file without displaying RadGrid control and you can use the ExportInfrastructure and manually generate it. Please examine the following code library which demonstrates how to achieve that.
