Asked On May 7, 2007 09:49 AM

I am having an Web project, in which AJAX has been implemented at the page level. I am having an user control with a link to download an excel file using Syncfusion, which is placed inside that page. Now if i try to download the excel file it shows an error as

'Sys.WebForms.PageRequestManagerParserErrorException: Common causes for this error are when the response is modified by calls to Response.Write(), response filters, HttpModules, or Server Trace is enabled.'

When i place the same user control in a page which does not have AJAX implemented, it works fine.

What should i do for that?

Hi Eswari,

Thanks your interest in Essential XlsIO.

I created a web project in which AJAX has been implemented at the page level. But I was not able to reproduce any issues. Here is the test sample that I used to test this issue:


Here is the video clip for your reference:


Could you please take a look at the sample above and kindly let me know if you still find any problem, if not could you please modify this sample so that I can reproduce the issue? This would help me in investigating this issue further.

Hi there,

I had the same issue but managed to fix it registering my button to send full postback. The problem lies in the fact that asynchronous postbacks are sent which means that the page on the client does not expect to receive an Excel document. Here is what you have to do to register your buttons:

protected override void OnPreRender(EventArgs e)
ScriptManager scriptManager = ScriptManager.GetCurrent(this.Page);
//ButtonExcelExport is the button firing the Excel download

Here is an interesting acticle about the PageRequestManagerParserErrorException :


I found the answer to my problem here:
