ASP.NET Excel Export Issue



I am trying to export data from SP to a .xlsx sheet. Total no of rows is more  than 15000 with total of 13 columns.The data is generated with the help of SQL Server SP. Till this point it is working fine. However while exporting to excel I do not get any data , the excel  has blank content.

If I have records less than 12000 it generated the excel report with  relevant data. However as row increases the report is blank.

Also the excel is generated through the code but when I deploy to server and try to generate it generates a blank excel. 

 Please advice what needs to be done. I have tried multiple options but none works.

Issue: Load {NUL} from flat file to "Flat File Source" faild.

Hi guys, I've met a strange issue when I was working to use SSIS to load data from flat file to database. It is a story about {NUL}. Sample Flat File: FIELD_SAMPLE|OTHERS ABC{NUL}DEFG|Any Others   I placed an Flat File Source to load these into package, and the configuration of the Connection Manager are as following: FIELD_SAMPLE: Unicode string [DT_WSTR], Length 8   Then I click the "Preview" button and I can see this data in the "Preview" window correctly (with the value "ABC{NUL}DEFG"). But when I tried to run this package, I've got an error that the "ABC{NUL}DEFG" is too long for this field. Then I changed the length to 20 and it was loaded into SSIS package. But I found the value in SSIS package is "ABC", and "{NUL}DEFG" was not there~ I have no ideal why it is ok in Preview but it is not ok when the package running~     Anyway, I hope to load the {NUL} from the flat file into target database. So that is there anybody could give me a hand?

Convert Data from TXT file and face a length issue! Need help!

Hi All, I am trying to convert some TXT files in to sqlserver database by using SSIS.  The problem I am facing right now is that some TXT files I have are fixed with line length 286.  However, for the some other TXTs they have 296 characters per line. The reason why this happened is some one added one more field before generating those TXTs.  Instead of creating two SSIS packages for converting those TXTs, can I find another way to get around this?

Export to PDF file in ASP.Net

Creating data driven application is one of the most commonly done task in our day today application development. In these applications, reporting and generating reports in various formats is one of the repeated requirements we will get. Read the article Export to Excel in ASP.Net 2.0 - Gridview to Excel, DataTable to Excel which discusses some handful of techniques to export the data to excel file. Apart from excel reports, generating PDF report is one of the most common reporting requirement we will get in data driven application. Exporting data to PDF format is not a straight forward task like we do for excel file generation. To do this, we have to employ some 3rd party component or develop a component ourselves by understanding the PDF file standards.

Since, developing a component ourselves is complicated and time consuming task we can try using any free 3rd party component available in the market. In this article, we will try using one of most widely used PDF generation component called iTextSharp or iText PDF component.

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?

export not compatible with import for null smallints

We have one system that exports a table to a pipe-delimited "|" csv file, and another that reads the csv file into a very similar table. One field in the table(s) is a nullable smallint. When the values in the table are null, SSIS exports to the flatfile as an empty field, just two adjacent separators. When I try to read that file back in, it generates an error, can't convert string to smallint. So, what's up with that? I suppose I can fix this one field, but is this going to be a general problem?  Is there a quick fix other than put in my own transformation? Thanks. Josh  --- oh hey, I think I fixed it!  Well, worked around it anyway.  Went to the source in the dataflow, in the advanced editor changed the output column type to DT_I2.  Now it imports as 0 instead of null.  Hmm, is that good enough?

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
