Is the spreadsheet component sufficient as an Excel-based reporting tool?

I am planning to implement report generation and Excel file export features in a React application using an Excel template file as a base.

I want to simplify the form creation and maintenance process by using an Excel file that is easy to edit and then bind the data to show the report output format, and then implement printer output and Excel saving functions.

 I am wondering if the spreadsheet component is sufficient to implement these features without using a reporting tool.

Hi Oncass,

Our spreadsheet component opens the already existing excel files through File Menu -> Open option in the toolbar. And save the modified spreadsheet content as excel through save option. For more details, please refer to the below links.

Currently, we don’t have print support for spreadsheets. However, we have considered this as a feature, and it will be available in any of our upcoming releases. You can track the status of this feature using below link from our feedback portal,

Please refer to the below UG documentation link for print workaround in our end. Or else you can export the spreadsheet as PDF and print that exported document based on your need.
