I m storing files(word,excel,pdf) files into sqlserver, and while downloading file we are using below code:-

for (int i = 0; i < file.Tables[1].Rows.Count; i++)
                   Byte[] data = (Byte[])file.Tables[1].Rows[i]["FileBlob"];
                   string s = System.Text.UTF8Encoding.UTF8.GetString(data);
                   byte[] bytearray = (data);
                   System.Text.UTF8Encoding encoding = new System.Text.UTF8Encoding();
                   //Response.Write( encoding.GetString(bytearray)) ;

                   string filename = file.Tables[1].Rows[i]["FileName"].ToString();
                   test.Text = filename + "<\br>";
                   string path = dir + "/" + filename;
                   var file1 = new FileInfo(Path.Combine(dir.FullName, filename));
                   if (!file1.Exists) // you may not want to overwrite existing files
                       using (Stream stream = file1.OpenWrite())
                       using (StreamWriter writer = new StreamWriter(stream))
                   zip.AddFile(path, "Files");

Solution 1

Why are you converting the file content from its native form into a string? That will destroy the Excel data.
