Import excel table into word

I looking a sample how to do this “Combine with Essential DocIO to generate Word documents from Excel worksheets. You can easily create tables in a Word document by exporting a range of cell values, including their formatting, from the Excel worksheet into that Word document. Again, no need for Excel or Word to be installed.”

I can't find some internal converter like for pdf and the way to simple insert datatable. How can i do it? Should i do it cell by cell?

Sridhar, I found the how way to convert merge cells.

But I still need help to convert rich text, maybe you have some sample of it?

Hi Nina Zarina,

Thank you so much for the update.

Currently, we do not have support for converting the RTF text from excel table to work table. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Julio, 

Sorry for the inconvenience. The links shared years ago are now broken. And, we don’t have direct support for Excel to Word conversion. The sample is an workaround with the below code which converts the Excel workbook to image and then the image is added into the Word document. 

Code snippet: 

using (ExcelEngine excelEngine = new ExcelEngine()) 
    IApplication application = excelEngine.Excel; 
    application.DefaultVersion = ExcelVersion.Excel2016; 
   //Open the Excel workbook 
    FileStream fileStream = new FileStream(Server.MapPath("App_Data/Sample.xlsx"), FileMode.Open, FileAccess.ReadWrite); 
    IWorkbook workbook = application.Workbooks.Open(fileStream); 
    IWorksheet worksheet = workbook.Worksheets[0]; 
    // Convert as bitmap 
    System.Drawing.Image image = worksheet.ConvertToImage(1, 1, 41, 4); 
    image.Save(Server.MapPath("App_Data/Sample.png"), ImageFormat.Png); 
    //Create a new Word document 
    WordDocument document = new WordDocument(); 
    //Adds section to the document 
    IWSection section = document.AddSection(); 
    //Adds new paragraph to the section 
    IWParagraph firstParagraph = section.AddParagraph(); 
    MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream(); 
    image.Save(stream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png); 
    byte[] imageBytes = stream.ToArray(); 
    //Append the picture to the document 
    IWPicture picture = firstParagraph.AppendPicture(imageBytes); 
    //Save the document as .docx and download 
    document.Save("Output.docx", FormatType.Docx, Response, HttpContentDisposition.Attachment); 

Kindly let us know if the sample helps.
