  • Hi Raja-Mytestdata,

    use the code mentioned below.

     static void Main(string[] args)
                Console.Write("File created Successfully");
            public static void CreateSpreadsheetWorkbook(string filepath)
                // Create a spreadsheet document by supplying the filepath.
                // By default, AutoSave = true, Editable = true, and Type = xlsx.
                SpreadsheetDocument spreadsheetDocument = SpreadsheetDocument.Create(filepath, SpreadsheetDocumentType.Workbook);
                // Add a WorkbookPart to the document.
                WorkbookPart workbookpart = spreadsheetDocument.AddWorkbookPart();
                workbookpart.Workbook = new Workbook();
                // Add a WorksheetPart to the WorkbookPart.
                WorksheetPart worksheetPart = workbookpart.AddNewPart<WorksheetPart>();
                worksheetPart.Worksheet = new Worksheet(new SheetData());
                // Add Sheets to the Workbook.
                Sheets sheets = spreadsheetDocument.WorkbookPart.Workbook.
                    AppendChild<Sheets>(new Sheets());
                // Append a new worksheet and associate it with the workbook.
                Sheet sheet = new Sheet()
                    Id = spreadsheetDocument.WorkbookPart.
                    SheetId = 1,
                    Name = "mySheet"
                // Close the document.
