Export Excel data to HTML using VB.Net in visual RRS feed

  • Question

  • In windows form need to export data from excel to HTML. I am trying as below but getting "Public member 'NamedaRanges' on type 'Worksheet' not found" in namedRanges. Not able to verify after that whether it will save HTML successfully. Please help to solve this.

        Private Sub Button_click() 
            xlSheet.SaveAs(FileName:="C:\Users\ Sample.html",                                                                                                        FileFormat:=xlHtml)
         End Sub

  • Hi Abio207,

    I suppose that definition of WorkBook and opening the WorkBook, and saving the WorkBooklwould be needed.
    (WorkSheet cannot be saved as a file)

  • Hi,

    Do you have "NamedRange" in the worksheet?

  • No. Can it be done in run time in VB? Can it be handled in script?

  • Hi,

    1) You need to specify whether it is Syntax error or Run-time error. 
    2) What do you want to do with this code?

  • It is run time error. I need A,B,C columns from excel to be exported as HTML report.

  • No I can't able to use those. Showing unwanted imports statement unnecessary.

  • Hi Abi0207,

    I've made a sample.

    Source Excel file:

    Saved HTML file  (viewed in Google Chrome browser):

    VB.NET code:
    ' ---[Export to HTML] button
    Private Sub btn_Export_to_HTML_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btn_Export_to_HTML.Click
    	Dim inputFile As String = "C:\Test\Test_Excel.xlsx"
    	Dim outputFile As String = "C:\Test\Test_Excel.html"
    	If (System.IO.File.Exists(outputFile)) Then
    	End If
    	' ---
    	Dim xlApp As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application
    	Dim xlSheet As New Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Worksheet
    	' --- 
    	With xlApp
    		' --- Open a Book, add a sheet, and name it
    		.Worksheets.Add() = "Sheet" & .Worksheets.Count
    		' --- set Sheet3 to xlSheet
    		xlSheet = xlApp.Worksheets("Sheet3")
    		' --- set data and save as HTML file
    		.ActiveSheet.range("A:C").value = xlSheet.Range("A:C").Value
    	End With
    	' --- release object
    	' ---
    	MsgBox("[" & outputFile & "] has been saved!")
    End Sub
    Private Sub btn_Open_HTML_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles btn_Open_HTML.Click
    	Dim inputFile As String = "C:\Test\Test_Excel.html"
    	Dim p As System.Diagnostics.Process _
    		= System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(inputFile)
    End Sub

       If there are 5 sheets in the source Excel file, the saved HTML file will have 5 sheets in it. So, if you want to leave only one sheet in the HTML file, you need to delete other sheets. (as for my code, delete all sheets except the last sheet)
