Description

Generates an Excel binary or OOXML file and saves it to a SharePoint Document Library.

C#
vb.net

Parameters

template
The current ExcelTemplate object which is being saved.
docLib
SharePoint Document Library that contains the Excel spreadsheet being opened
fileName
Name of the output file. ExcelWriter will save the file to the document library using this name. If a file with the same name exists, it will be overwritten by the new Excel file if the overwrite parameter is set to True.
overwrite
Set to True to overwrite an Excel file if one already exists by that name in the Document Library

Exceptions

ArgumentNullException
Save will throw this exception if null (C#) or Nothing (VB.NET) is passed to the method.
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 Document Libraries. To use this method, you must add a reference to SoftArtisans.OfficeWriter.ExcelWriter.SharePointIntegration.dll
