How to export user-defined function from grid to excel workbook?

In order to export user-defined formula library function from Grid to Excel, the following steps has to be followed.

  1. Create an Excel Add-In file (*.xla) including the user-defined function as illustrated in the following steps:
  • Create a new empty workbook and click Save As from the File menu.
  • In the Save As dialog box, select the location to save the workbook. Enter the file name for the Add-In workbook, and then select the type as Excel Add-In (*.xla).
  • Click Save, and then press ALT+ F11 to open the VBA Editor. Now, you can create the custom function through the VBA Editor by inserting a module.
  1. Now, bind add-in file path and custom method name with GridExcelConverterControl through AddCustomFunction method.

The following screenshot illustrates how to create the user-defined function through the VBA editor.

The XLA file will not be visible in Excel because Add-Ins are never visible. All changes must be done to the VBA Editor only.
