Step 2: Name the project.

Name the Application

Step 3: Install the Syncfusion.XlsIO.Net.Core NuGet package as reference to your .NET Standard applications from NuGet.org.

Install Syncfusion.XlsIO.Net.Core Nuget Package

NOTE

Starting with v16.2.0.x, if you reference Syncfusion assemblies from trial setup or from the NuGet feed, you also have to add “Syncfusion.Licensing” assembly reference and include a license key in your projects. Please refer to this link to know about registering Syncfusion license key in your applications to use our components.

Step 4: Include the following namespaces in the Program.cs file.

using Syncfusion.XlsIO;
   using System.IO;
   using Syncfusion.Drawing;
Imports Syncfusion.XlsIO
   Imports System.IO
   Imports Syncfusion.Drawing

Step 5: Include the below code snippet in program.cs to create an Excel file.

Create a simple Excel report using .NET Framework

The below steps illustrates creating a simple Invoice formatted Excel document in console application using .NET Framework.

Step 1: Create a new C# Console Application(.NET Framework) project.

Create console application(.NET Framework) in Visual Studio

Step 2: Name the project.

Name the Application

Step 3: Install the Syncfusion.XlsIO.WinForms NuGet package as reference to your .NET Standard applications from NuGet.org.

Install Syncfusion.XlsIO.WinForms Nuget Package

NOTE

The Syncfusion.XlsIO.WinForms NuGet package is dependent package for Syncfusion Windows Forms GUI controls, so named with sufix “WinForms”. It has platform independent .NET framework (4.0, 4.5, 4.5.1, 4.6) assemblies of Excel library and doesn’t contain any Windows Forms related references or code. Hence, we recommend this package for .NET framework Console application.

Step 4: Include the following namespaces in the program.cs file.

using Syncfusion.XlsIO;
   using System.IO;
   using System.Drawing;
Imports Syncfusion.XlsIO
   Imports System.IO
   Imports System.Drawing

Step 5: Include the below code snippet in program.cs to create an Excel file.
