      products.Rows.Add(1, "product 1");
      products.Rows.Add(2, "product 2");
      products.Rows.Add(3, "product 3");
      products.Rows.Add(4, "product 4");
      products.Rows.Add(5, "product 5");

      var grid = new GridView();
      grid.DataSource = products;

      Response.Buffer = true;
      Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=Result.xls");
      Response.ContentType = "application/ms-excel";

      StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
      HtmlTextWriter htw = new HtmlTextWriter(sw);
