How do you freeze the tablix header row in an Excel export file in SSRS 2008?

So this is totally killing me. I've found out how to make a tablix header row repeat on each page of a PDF export file in SSRS 2008 (which I won't even get started on because all I can say is that 2005 is way better), but I cannot figure out how to make a simple header row of a tablix freeze in an Excel export file.  The tablix is right at the top of the body and spans the entire width of the design area.  How in the world do you get it to freeze in the Excel export file?

SharePoint 2010 Export list Items to Excel, wrong url in iqy file

Hi, I have a SharePoint 2010 Environment that uses https://portal.<something>.com. Exporting to Excel of a list uses wrong URL. When I go to the a list, select the list to show the "office ribbon" and then select export to excel, excel will show the error "Excel cannot connect to the SharePoint List". When I take a look at the IQY file that is created it contains the wrong url: http://portal.<something>.com instead of https://portal.<something>.com Changing the URL in the IQY file manualy to https://portal.<something>.com and then opening it will excel is working fine, list data is exported to excel then. Alternate access mapping is configured to use https://portal.<something>.com as default, export to access is working normaly. I already deleted the http://portal.<something>.com alternate access mapping once to see if this fixes the problem. No fix, even not after IISreset or rebooting the server. Where or how is the export to Excel IQY file created and where is it possible to fix the URL it is putting in the IQY file? Grtz, Arjan

Import Excel-File (OPENROWSET) on x64 SQL Server


Hi, recently I encountered the following problem:

I tried to execute a stored procedure on the newly installed SQL 2005 Server (now on x64 Win Server 2003) which imports an Excel-File into a DB table.

We use OPENROWSET to access the Excel data. But I recognized this is dependent on Jet OLE DB which seems is not available for x64 windows.


Is there another way to import excel data using a stored procedure.


thank you in advance, rene

Export to Excel gives error before opening file


I have a web page with a gridview control and a button for Exporting to Excel

I get following error when exporting to Excel.

"The fiel you are trying to open, 'someFileName[1].xls, is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"

Clicking Yes opens the file. I would like to avoid showing the above error to the users.

Following code is used from the click event. I've left the commented code here to show what I've tried based on results from internet search. I have Microsoft Office Excel 2007 on local PC.

public static void ToExcel(DataTable dt, string fileName)
			string attachment = "attachment; filename=" + fileName + ".xls";

			GridView gvExcel = new System.Web.UI.WebControls.GridView();
			gvExcel.AutoGenerateColumns = true;
			gvExcel.DataSource = dt;

			//HttpContext.Current.Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", attachment);
			//HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/ms-excel";
			HttpContext.Current.Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";

How can I download an Excel file saved on the same server as an asp.Net website?

Is there a way to export a datagrid to an Excel or html format file?

Hi all.. thanks for taking the time to help in advance!! :)

I've written a win application that has a datagrid which displays certain contents from a database, is there a way to allow the user to export the contents of that datagrid to maybe an excel file or html file so they can print it out themselves? I've done a lot of googling and most i could find were for web applications and not winform.. can someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks very much guys! :)

Import Excel File to Sql Server on a 64 bit machine


I need to import Excel (xls - 2003-2007) data into a Sql Server 2008 database. Both the Excel file and the database live on a Windows Server 2003 R2 sp2 64 bit machine.  I’m fine with it running in 32 bit mode but it all needs to happen on the same server. Also, I would like it to run in T-Sql but as a fallback we can do this in SSIS.

My T-Sql code which runs fine on a 32 bit machine is as follows:

SELECT * Into #TempTable From OpenRowSet('Microsoft.Jet.Oledb.4.0','Excel 8.0;Database=\\Servername\Folder\filename.xls;HDR=NO;IMEX=1', 'select * from [Main$]')


On the 64 bit server:

ASP.NetWindows Application  .NET Framework  C#  VB.Net  ADO.Net  
Sql Server  SharePoint  Silverlight  Others  All
