This article just demonstrates how to quickly and smoothly export data to PDF, HTML, Excel or Word document in .NET.

Developers always wish to quickly export data to PDF, HTML, Excel or Word Document. Here shares a fast and smooth solution for .NET developer/programmer. This solution was based on and supported by a free data export component.

The following picture is a screenshot of the design form of this project:

Please download Spire.Dataexport and follow my steps to export data to PDF,HTML, Excel or Word.

In order to export data to the target files, we have to load data information first. The following codes is an easy alternative to help us load data information.

private void btnLoad_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    using (OleDbConnection oleDbConnection = new OleDbConnection())
        oleDbConnection.ConnectionString = this.tbCS.Text;
        System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand oleDbCommand = new OleDbCommand();
        oleDbCommand.CommandText = this.tbCT.Text;
        oleDbCommand.Connection = oleDbConnection;
        using (OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(oleDbCommand))
            DataTable dt = new DataTable();
            dataGridView1.DataSource = dt;

After we successfully load data information we need, next we can set export to PDF, Html, Excel or Word document.

1. Export data to PDF

    Spire.DataExport.PDF.PDFExport PDFExport = new Spire.DataExport.PDF.PDFExport();
    PDFExport.DataSource = Spire.DataExport.Common.ExportSource.DataTable;
    PDFExport.DataTable = this.dataGridView.DataSource as DataTable;
    PDFExport.ActionAfterExport = Spire.DataExport.Common.ActionType.OpenView;
2. Export Data to HTML
private void btnRun_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    Spire.DataExport.HTML.HTMLExport HTMLExport = new Spire.DataExport.HTML.HTMLExport();
    HTMLExport.DataSource = Spire.DataExport.Common.ExportSource.DataTable;
    HTMLExport.DataTable = this.dataGridView1.DataSource as DataTable;
    HTMLExport.ActionAfterExport = Spire.DataExport.Common.ActionType.OpenView;

3. Export Data to Excel

private void btnRun_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    Spire.DataExport.XLS.CellExport cellExport = new Spire.DataExport.XLS.CellExport();
    Spire.DataExport.XLS.WorkSheet worksheet1 = new Spire.DataExport.XLS.WorkSheet();
    worksheet1.DataSource = Spire.DataExport.Common.ExportSource.DataTable;
    worksheet1.DataTable = this.dataGridView1.DataSource as DataTable;
    worksheet1.StartDataCol = ((System.Byte)(0));
    cellExport.ActionAfterExport = Spire.DataExport.Common.ActionType.OpenView; 
4. Export Data to Word

private void btnRun_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    Spire.DataExport.RTF.RTFExport RTFExport = new Spire.DataExport.RTF.RTFExport();
    RTFExport.DataSource = Spire.DataExport.Common.ExportSource.DataTable;
    RTFExport.DataTable = this.dataGridView1.DataSource as DataTable;
    RTFExport.ActionAfterExport = Spire.DataExport.Common.ActionType.OpenView;
    RTFExport.FileName = "RTF0722.rtf";
