Response.Buffer = true;

Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment;filename=GridViewExport.doc");

Response.Charset = "";

Response.ContentType = "application/ ";

StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();

HtmlTextWriter hw = new HtmlTextWriter(sw);

GridView1.AllowPaging = false;






there is the code i tried , bur the problem is when i opened the file i found it empty and often it connot be opened because there was an error in encoding, any help, please?

If an Office 2007 version is okay, then using the Open XML Tool[^] is probably the most fun way to do it.

Basically, create the Word doc as you would like it to appear, then create the class that will generate it, looping through your data result and put the values in the appropriate place in the doc.

Not easy, but well worth the effort, especially if you want to spit out the result from a web server...which pretty much precludes using any sort of Office "automation".

Just am googled with 'export gridview to word' as keyword. I got 254K results. below URL is Second one, if you noticed Third result from CP.


My suggestion is: Please search it before asking the question.

While they (all the ones I checked, anyway) will work, they don't actually create a Word doc. They just "trick" Word or Excel into opening what you send it. That is probably fine in most cases...but not if you need a "real" doc for whetever reason (formatting, etc.).
