Description

C#
vb.net

Parameters

template
The current ExcelTemplate object which is being saved.
listItem
SharePoint List Item to which the file is attached
fileName
Name of the output file. ExcelWriter will save the file to the list item using this name.

Exceptions

ArgumentException

Remarks

ExcelWriter allows you to save in both the Excel 97-03 BIFF8 format (.xls) or the new Office Open XML (.xlsx) format. The template file must be of the expected output format. Hence, if you wish to output .xls files, you must start with a .xls template, and if you wish to output .xlsx files, you must start with a .xlsx template. ExcelWriter does not support the creation or editing of .xlsx files with the ExcelApplication object.

You can call Save more than once for a single instance of ExcelTemplate. This allows you to save more than one copy of a generated file, and/or both save the file on the server and stream it to the client.

Icon

This is an extension method for the ExcelTemplate object to be used for saving spreadsheets to SharePoint List Items. To use this method, you must add a reference to SoftArtisans.OfficeWriter.ExcelWriter.SharePointIntegration.dll
