Export Data to Excel Based on Date Range

  
I have data from multiple tables that I would like to display in a gridview via a stored procedure.  I need to select the data based on a date range and display it.  Once displayed I need to include a button that would allow the user to export the gridview data to an excel spreadsheet.  Does anyone have an out of the box solution or know of a tutorial I can use to accomplish this feat?  I am currently using 2.0 for this project. I am newish to .net. Thanks in advance. Here is my stored procedure that calls the data from multiple tables.USE [DATABASENAME] GO /****** Object: StoredProcedure [dbo].[GetUsersAll] Script Date: 09/03/2010 08:20:23 ******/ SET ANSI_NULLS ON GO SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO ALTER PROCEDURE [dbo].[GetUsersAll] AS SELECT aspnet_Users.UserName, aspnet_Membership.Email, Team.Name, MemberTeamRole.InsertDate, MemberTeamRole.ManagerApprovedDate, MemberTeamRole.RegistrarApprovedDate, MemberTeamRole.RoleName, MemberInfo.firstname, MemberInfo.lastname FROM aspnet_Membership INNER JOIN aspnet_Users ON aspnet_Membership.UserId = aspnet_Users.UserId INNER JOIN MemberInfo ON aspnet_Users.UserId = MemberInfo.memberid LEFT OUTER JOIN MemberTeamRole ON aspnet_Membership.UserId = MemberTeamRole

SSRS 2005 Render Format Excel Issue with Time Field

  

I have a report that uses a datetime field but gets populated only with the time. So, in SQL db, it gets stored with a default date value of 1899-12-30 12:01:01 with the correct time filled in. Report in SSRS Preview mode displays the value just fine when I use the Time format in Layout mode. I build and deploy and able to view the report in a web browser with no problem displaying the time field. But when I subscribe to the report and choose Excel render format, when I open up the Excel file from the email that was sent, I get negative decimal values. I have tried every possible Time format in SSRS but I get the same result. I also tried just the default and still gives me negative decimal values that show up as ####### in Excel.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks


Unable to render image to excel

  

Hi All,

 I have an image loaded in a div element. (This image will be added dynamically thru JS, based on the option selected by the user).

I have a requirement to open this image in Word, Excel and Pdf applications when those icons (given in the page) are clicked, respectively.

 

Response.Clear();
                Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=ComparisonData.xls");
                Response.Charset = "";
                Response.Cache.SetCacheability(HttpCacheability.NoCache);
                Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.xls";
                StringWriter stringWrite = new StringWriter();
                HtmlTextWriter htmlWrite = new HtmlTextWriter(stringWrite);
                dvComparisonBuilder.RenderControl(htmlWrite);
                Response.Write(stringWrite.ToString());
                Response.End();

The same code works fine to render a gridview in excel, but not an image. I also tried placing the image element in a table tag.

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Excel Render - Print Header on Each Page

  

Hello Microsoft or Forum Members:

 

This seems like a simple Microsoft Based Reporting System 101 feature...But I can not find out how to do it (among other things that seem like it should work with Microsoft rendering to Microsoft).

 

How do I make the SSRS 2005 Header for the Report print on each of the pages in excel once it is rendered from SSRS?

 

All I want is an answer by MSFT that says "YES" it can be done and how or "No" it is not currently available.

 

I noticed I am not the only one with this type of simple question:

Excel 2010 OLAP Pivot Tables - Can a Date Dimension name be used as a Date not String?

  

Scenario:  Have built a SSAS 2008 cube and am using Excel 2010 pivot tables as the UI to access the data.  The end-users want to be able to treat the Date Dimension name value as an Excel friendly date, mainly to apply custom formats for pivot charts (such as mmm-yy or dd/mmm/yyyy) and to be able to sort ascending and descending.

Problem:  Although the Date dimension attribute is setup with 'mmm-yy' formatted text as the name and a datetime value as the value, Excel refuses to treat the dimension name as a date.  The result being custom formatting is ignored and pivot sorting results in text sorting only (Apr-00, Apr-01 etc).

Investigation:  Have tried several string combinations for dimension attribute name (even using the Excel datevalue numbers) with no success. Have found some earlier blogs which go part of the way in explaining.  It appears that no matter what you set as the name value you are always going to end up with a string label that can't be formatted or sorted in any other way other than text, as indicated by Darren Gosbell answer to a similiar question.

“...When you display a dimension attribute in an Excel pivot table what you are seeing is the name of each member. The name property of

Convert Excel Date serial in CSV to DT_DATE

  

i have a few Spreadsheets that have been converted to CSV to get around the 65k row limitation (we have 3.5million lines of data). unfortunately when they were converted the date has been saved in serial format (i.e. 40789 etc)

i have stried using substring to reformat in a derived column but it doesn't work. i have also tried settin the data type in the Flat file connection manager to date, this still doesn't work.

does anyone know how i can convert this format into an SQL Friendly format?

 

Many thanks,

Excel Date Field Import Problem in Oracle SQL Developer

  

Hi All,

I have an Excel file (which has data imported from Oracle 10G Database) one of the fields is a Date Filed which has values like 28-JAN-11 03.25.11.000000000 PM ( Date field is Oracle Time Stamp(6) in Database )

When I am trying to Import the same Excel file from another Oracle 10 G database (for another database/application), I get an error because the data field is not being recognized by Oracle 10G --> Import is being done by ORACLE SQL Developer (Table (field) has TIMESTAMP(6) as the datatype)

How can I import that field ?? For time being I made the TIMESTAMP to VARCHAR2 and its working but I could not convert that to Date field again in C# CODE ( it says not a valid date type).

Problem in Date Format While Exporting To Excel Destination From Flat File Source In SSIS

  

Hi,

I have a flat file(.csv) which contains data(strings incuding date in yyyy-mm-dd format).This i am using in Flat File Source and want to export those data to an Excel Destination.Before exporting to Excel Destination i have created a Derived Column component where i am using an express to get day,month,year part and creating a date sting in dd/mm/yyyy format then conveting it to DT_DATE datatype and then exporting to Excel Component.But while exporting to Excel this date format is getting changed to mm/dd/yyyy format.

The expression i used in derived column is

(DT_DATE)(SUBSTRING(date,9,2) + "/" + SUBSTRING(date,6,2) + "/" + SUBSTRING(date,1,4))

where date is a column from Flat File Source.

Even I changed the Locale to English(United Kingdom) in Flat File Connection Manager for the above .csv file.But still it didnt work.

I searched a lot in google and failed to get any solution on this.

Can anyone help me in solving this issue ?


Using a CompareValidator to check input is a valid date

  
The CompareValidator can do more than just compare two controls. You can also compare it against several of the main .net data types such as Date, Integer, Double and Currency.

To do this you would set Operator="DataTypeCheck" and instead of setting the ControlToCompare or ValueToCompare attributes as you normally would you use the Type="Date" (or any of the data types I have listed above).

Export Visio Database Table Names to Excel

  
If you use the Enterprise Architect edition of Microsoft Visio for data modeling regularly, then there is a good chance that at some point you've wanted to export just the table names into Excel. You might want to do this to map logical ERD entities to physical data model tables, track project status by entity, or track overlap between database versions.

Excel Automation in .Net

  
Excel Automation is a buzz word in both webapps and winapps. In the programming life (like Mr.Anderson neo) I guess almost every one could have come across this word. For others let me go further in detail. Excel Automation is automating some or all of the process involved in creating or updating excel worsheets.

How To Set a Date Format In GridView Using ASP.NET 2.0

  
A very common desire is to set a column of a gridview to display just the month, day and year of a DateTime type. The problem is the by default, the HtmlEncode property of the boundfield attribute (
The problem is that if this field is enabled, you can not pass format information to the boundfield control. That is, if you try the following code, you will not get the desired result.

jQuery Date picker Implementation in ASP.NET

  
I've posted a wrapper ASP.NET around the jQuery.UI Datepickercontrol. This small client side calendar control is compact, looks nice and is very easy to use and I've added it some time back to my control library.

This is primarily an update for the jQuery.ui version, and so I spend a few hours or so cleaning it up which wasn't as easy as it could have been since the API has changed quite drastically from Marc's original implementation. The biggest changes have to do with the theming integration and the resulting explosion of related resources.

If you want to use this component you can check it out a sample and the code here:

Export SharePoint List to Excel Spreadsheet Programmatically using C#

  
In SharePoint applications, Custom Lists are used to store business data and Document Libraries to store the documents. But for data manupulation and analysis, Microsoft Excel provides very rich features as compared to SharePoint Lists. That's why people still loves to work on Microsoft Excel Sheets.
