`return {
getExportExcel: function (tableId, fileName) {

            name = fileName + '.xls';
            var table = document.querySelector(tableId),
                ctx = {table: table.innerHTML};
            var browser = window.navigator.appVersion;

            if ((browser.indexOf('Trident') !== -1 && browser.indexOf('rv:11') !== -1) ||
                (browser.indexOf('MSIE 10') !== -1)) {
                var builder = new window.MSBlobBuilder();
                builder.append(uri + format(template, ctx));
                var blob = builder.getBlob('data:application/vnd.ms-excel');
                window.navigator.sSaveOrOpenBlob(blob, name);

$scope.exportToExcel=function(tableId){
var exportHref=Excel.tableToExcel(tableId,'report');
var a = document.createElement('a');
a.href = exportHref;
a.download = 'Exported_Table.xls';
a.click();
}

After using the above code ,I am getting warning message before opening the file saying "The file could be uncorrupted or unsafe,Unless you trust its source, don't open it. Do you want to open it anyway"?
If I m clicking on yes, file is getting opened.
Can any one please help me, how to resolve this warning message before opening the file

Hi, this works very well, but I'm having trouble getting it to work for larger tables. It works perfectly up to about 2100 rows. Any bigger and the download fails. Any thoughts on how to get around this?

@CliffyMk ,
Your code works after including id in table instead of div .
eg:

Instead of
.
and if the downloaded file doesnt open in apache open office just try changing extension name of your file to .xls

Hi,

I want to export a table into xls. The size of the file is around 4MB - 5MB.
The script works fine in Firefox. But in Chrome, the export to excel button is redirecting me to about:blank page.

Any idea why?

Anil-bohorya commented Jan 15, 2018

getting issue: -

  1. 'The file format and extension of 'abc.xls' don't match. The file could be corrupted or unsafe. Unless you trust its source, don't open it. Do you want to open it anyway?' while opening downloaded file.
  2. Background is totally white. Not showing grids with black border. Do I need to give styling inside code?

Please help.

tableToExcel: function (tableId, worksheetName) { var table = document.getElementById(tableId); var ctx = { worksheet: worksheetName, table: table.innerHTML }; var href = uri + base64(format(template, ctx)); return href; }

but thanks for the snippet.

Can anyone tell me if there's a way to get rid of the security pop up? It's Microsoft's desired behavior per this post

Anyone able to get custom CSS working for this solution?
Update: answering my own CSS question... CSS must be inline for it to persist

HI,
Could you give me some reference of html template for Excel that you have used above example. So that I can customise it according to my requirement.

Thanks

Just include only column names and their values. If you are using any dropdown, then take the value of that which is stored in the Scope variable.

But it doesn't work in chrome when the file exceed 2Mb. It's very easy to hit 2Mb when the html consists of a lot of html.

if the code for download with a custom filename don't work in Firefox, change the else part in tableToExcel with:

var link = document.createElement('a');
link.setAttribute("type", "hidden"); // hide link
link.download = fileName;
link.href = uri + base64(format(template, ctx));
document.body.appendChild(link); //Required for Firefox
link.click();
link.remove();

And add in template, before </head>
<style><!-- table {mso-displayed-decimal-separator: "\.";mso-displayed-thousand-separator: "\,";} --></style>
For specify thousands separator and decimal separator.
