   SaveFileDialog saveFileDialog = new SaveFileDialog();
   saveFileDialog.Filter = "Files(*.Xls)|*.Xls|Files(*.Xlsx)|*Xlsx";
   saveFileDialog.AddExtension = true;
   saveFileDialog.DefaultExt = ".Xls";
   saveFileDialog.FileName = "Book1";
   if (saveFileDialog.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK && saveFileDialog.CheckPathExists)
       excelConverter.GroupingGridToExcel(this.gridGroupingControl1, saveFileDialog.FileName, ConverterOptions.ColumnHeaders);
       if (MessageBox.Show("Do you wish to open the xls file now?", "Export to Excel", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Question) == DialogResult.Yes)
           System.Diagnostics.Process proc = new System.Diagnostics.Process();
           proc.StartInfo.FileName = saveFileDialog.FileName;
