Here am trying to show how we can export an image to excel file.

References Used: Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel;

Link for downloading the dlls and install : Office XP PIAs

Add Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.dll  to the bin folder.

Add office.dll to the bin folder.

String sFileImage = System.IO.Path.Combine(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["UploadPath"], Session["UserId"].ToString() + ".gif");
String sFilePath = System.IO.Path.Combine(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["UploadPath"], Session["UserId"].ToString() + ".xls");
if (File.Exists(sFilePath)) { File.Delete(sFilePath); }

Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.ApplicationClass objApp = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.ApplicationClass();
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet objSheet = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet();
Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Workbook objWorkBook = null;
//object missing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;

   objWorkBook = objApp.Workbooks.Add(Type.Missing);
   objSheet = (Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet)objWorkBook.ActiveSheet;

   //Add picture to single sheet1
   objSheet = (Worksheet)objWorkBook.Sheets[1];
   objSheet.Name = "Graph with Report";


   Or multiple sheets

   for (int iSheet = 0; iSheet < objWorkBook.Sheets.Count - 1; iSheet++)
      objSheet = objWorkBook.Sheets[iSheet] as Worksheet;
      ///(objSheet as Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel._Worksheet).Activate();


   objSheet.Shapes.AddPicture(sFileImage, Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoFalse, Microsoft.Office.Core.MsoTriState.msoCTrue, 10, 10, 700, 350);
   objWorkBook.SaveAs(sFilePath, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing,
   Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.XlSaveAsAccessMode.xlExclusive, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing, Type.Missing);
catch (Exception)
 //Error Alert
    objWorkBook = null;
    objApp = null;

The ASP.NET Wiki was started by Scott Hanselman in February of 2008. The idea is that folks spend a lot of time trolling the blogs, googlinglive-searching for answers to common "How To" questions. There's piles of fantastic community-created and MSFT-created content out there, but if it's not found by a search engine and the right combination of keywords, it's often lost.

The ASP.NET Wiki articles moved to CodeProject in October 2013 and will live on, loved, protected and updated by the community.
