Functionality and Features


  1. Download and install the package:

       npm install --save @progress/kendo-vue-excel-export @progress/kendo-licensing
  2. Once installed, import the method.

    // ES2015 module syntax
    import { saveAs } from '@progress/kendo-file-saver';
    // CommonJS format
    const { saveAs } = require('@progress/kendo-vue-excel-export');
  3. Follow the instructions on the Kendo UI for Vue Activate License Key page to activate your license. You can skip this step if your application already contains a Kendo UI for Vue license file.


The Excel Export package is compatible with both Vue 2 and Vue 3.

Historically, all Kendo UI for Vue Native components support both Vue 2 and Vue 3, however Vue 2 is currently in its end-of-support phase till Nov 2024. After our last major release for 2024, Vue 2 will no longer be supported in the new versions of the Kendo UI for Vue components. Please check our Vue 2 End of Support article for more details.

Known Limitations

  • Older browsers, such as Internet Explorer 9 and Safari, require you to implement a server proxy. For more information, refer to the section on the proxyUrl configuration.
  • The maximum size of the exported file has a system-specific limit. For large data sets, it is highly recommended that you use a server-side solution.
