How to export grid view in excel having nested grid view ? this is giving erroe given below...

Error giving while exporting in excel : Control 'GridView2' of type 'GridView' must be placed inside a form tag with runat=server.

Put this in your page's code
public override void VerifyRenderingInServerForm(Control control)
   /* Verifies that the control is rendered */

I strongly suspect this is the issue. If this don't solve the issue,let me know.

As mentioned in error description, issue is with your FORM tag. You have to specify runat="server" with FORM tag. Like below:

<form id="form1" runat="server">

Post your code(aspx & cs) if this does not solve your issue.
That doesn't nearly a question though. We can't see your code so that we can tell what that error mean.Better follow these links and find solution:
