Export to excel generates extra lines

Asked On February 11, 2014 02:49 AM UTC

We are using the GridGroupingControl to export a dataset into an excel file. This is working ok, except that the generated file has 3 extra rows at the top of the file - 2 blank lines a a line that says "Table: n Items".

Is there an easy way to make it so these extra lines are not generate with the export?

Example code:
var syncGrid = new GridGroupingControl
    DataSource = data.Tables[0]
excel.ExportNestedTable = true; excel.Export();

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Eswari,

We were using an older version, so I guess I will simply need to update to get rid of two of the blank lines.

Is it possible to get rid of the line that mentions the number of items in the table, in your example it says:

"Table1: 13 Items ( Showing 1 to 12 )"

Hi Jo,


Thanks for your update.


The reported issue “ Setting Caption Row (Table1: 13 Items ( Showing 1 to 12 ))  as false , gives blank row while exporting ” is suspected to be defect and we will update you with further validation details on 02/21/2014.


Also could you please share the Essential Studio current version which you are using and screenshot of the exported sheet which contains two blank lines or sample files of the grid ? Since we can able to reproduce one blank row issue by setting caption row as false , not two blank rows as you have specified. The information provided would be of great help in resolving the issue.


Let us know if you have any queries.
