Generation of Excel documents from Windows Store App. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for solution (possibility) to generate (and view) Excel files from my Windows Store App.

    Unfortunately, I can't target DocumentFormat.OpenXml 2.5.0  https://www.nuget.org/packages/DocumentFormat.OpenXml/2.5.0  to Windows Store app

    Also I require full functionality Excel docs (not csv), and can't use Export To CSV - http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/Export-To-CSV-Sample-b31b50cf.

    Maybe someone knows solution: How generate excel files in Windows Store App?

    This is not a joke? There is no free way to Create/View Excel files in Windows Store App?

  • There is no in-box Excel API. You'll need to look for 3rd party implementations or implement the file format yourself.

    A quick search finds a couple of options you can look into. I can't make specific recommendations, but Community members may be able to share their experiences.
