Starting in 2019, the Reporting control is no longer included in Essential Studio. If you're experiencing issues with the Syncfusion Reporting Platform, Report Viewer, Report Designer, or Report Writer, we recommend migrating to Bold Reports, our dedicated reporting platform.

Bold Reports offers a comprehensive suite of tools and features for all your reporting needs, and we will help you make a smooth transition from the discontinued control. Our support team at https://support.boldreports.com/ is here to assist you with any questions or difficulties you may encounter during the migration process.

How to Export report to DOCX format

The code below is from your sample MVC app.  The HTML Report Viewer currently will export to Doc format.  How would I modify the code below to export to Docx or Word2013 format.   

@(Html.EJ().ReportViewer("reportviewer").ProcessingMode(Syncfusion.JavaScript.ReportViewerEnums.ProcessingMode.Local).ReportPath("~/App_Data/GroupingAggregate.rdlc").ReportServiceUrl("/api/ReportAPI").DataSources(t => t.Name("Sales").Value(ViewData["Sales"]).Add()))

Hi Jeffrey,


Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.


We have exposed the WordFormatType property in our EJMVC ReportViewer and using this we can set the specific export format for word as shown by below code snippet,


        @(Html.EJ().ReportViewer("reportviewer").ExportSettings(exp => exp.WordFormatType(Syncfusion.JavaScript.ReportViewerEnums.WordFormats.Docx)).ProcessingMode(Syncfusion.JavaScript.ReportViewerEnums.ProcessingMode.Remote).ReportServiceUrl(VirtualPathUtility.ToAbsolute("~/api/SSRSReport")).ReportServerUrl("").ReportPath("/SSRSSamples2/Territory Sales new"))       


As of now, ReportViewer does not support the export file extension based on the format type. We have consider the enhancement as issue “export the file extension based on the format type”, in order for you to get a solution for this behavior, please contact us at Syncfusion Support or you may also open a support ticket by login in to direct trac account and mention this forum link for reference.


Please let us know, if you have any concerns.

If I understand you correctly, are you saying that with the WordFormatType set to DOCX, the program is creating an Open XML document, but the document extension will still show "doc"?
