Export Option in Pivot Grid

The pivot grid provides an option to export its content to various formats. It provides the following exporting options.

  • Microsoft Excel format - Cell and pivot table mode
  • Microsoft Word format
  • PDF format
  • CSV format

Export to Excel

The pivot grid can be exported to an Excel document using Syncfusion XlsIO libraries. It consists of two exporting modes, and you can switch from one mode to another mode using the ExportMode property.

  • Pivot Table: Exports the pivot grid directly as a pivot table like in Microsoft Excel.
  • Cell: Exports the pivot grid as individual cell values.

To export the pivot grid contents to Excel, add Syncfusion.PivotGridConverter.Wpf.dll and Syncfusion.XlsIO.Base assemblies to your application and include the namespace Syncfusion.Windows.Controls.PivotGrid.Converter to access the GridExcelExport class.

Now, define the pivot grid control and bind the data source along with pivot rows, pivot columns, and pivot calculations. Create an instance of GridExcelExport class and then invoke the Export method in it. OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog options are used to save the exported file in the preferred location.

Refer to the following code sample.

  • c#
  • private void Button_Export(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)) {
        ////Export to Excel document
        SaveFileDialog savedialog = new SaveFileDialog();
        savedialog.AddExtension = true;
        savedialog.FileName = "Sample";
        savedialog.DefaultExt = "xlsx";
        savedialog.Filter = "Excel file (.xlsx)|*.xlsx";
        if (savedialog.ShowDialog() == true) {
            fileName = savedialog.FileName;
            GridExcelExport excelExport = new GridExcelExport(pivotGrid, Syncfusion.XlsIO.ExcelVersion.Excel2007);
            excelExport.ExportMode = ExportModes.PivotTable;
            excelExport.Export(fileName);
        }
    }

    Export to Word

    To export the pivot grid contents to Word, add the Syncfusion.PivotGridConverter.Wpf.dll assembly to your application and include the namespace Syncfusion.Windows.Controls.PivotGrid.Converter to access the GridWordExport class.

    Now, define the pivot grid control and bind the data source along with pivot rows, pivot columns, and pivot calculations. Create an instance for GridWordExport class and then invoke the Export method in it. OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog options are used to save the exported file in the preferred location.

    Refer to the following code sample.

  • c#
  • private void Button_Export(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)) {
        //// Export to Word document
        SaveFileDialog savedialog = new SaveFileDialog();
        savedialog.AddExtension = true;
        savedialog.FileName = "Sample";
        savedialog.DefaultExt = "Doc";
        savedialog.Filter = "Word file (.Doc)|*.Doc";
        if (savedialog.ShowDialog() == true) {
            fileName = savedialog.FileName;
            GridWordExport wordExport = new GridWordExport(pivotGrid);
            wordExport.Export(fileName);
        }
    }

    Exports the PivotGrid into word document

    Export to PDF

    To export the pivot grid contents to PDF, add Syncfusion.PivotGridConverter.Wpf.dll assembly to your application and include the namespace Syncfusion.Windows.Controls.PivotGrid.Converter to access the GridPdfExport class.

    Now, define the pivot grid control and bind the data source along with pivot rows, pivot columns, and pivot calculations. Create an instance for GridPdfExport class and then, invoke the Export method in it. OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog options are used to save the exported file in the preferred location.

    Refer to the following code sample.

  • c#
  • private void Button_Export(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)) {
        ////Export to PDF document
        SaveFileDialog savedialog = new SaveFileDialog();
        savedialog.AddExtension = true;
        savedialog.FileName = "Sample";
        savedialog.DefaultExt = "pdf";
        savedialog.Filter = "Pdf file (.pdf)|*.pdf";
        if (savedialog.ShowDialog() == true) {
            fileName = savedialog.FileName;
            GridPdfExport pdfExport = new GridPdfExport(pivotGrid);
            pdfExport.Export(fileName);
        }
    }

    Exports the PivotGrid into PDF document

    Export to CSV

    To export the pivot grid contents to CSV, add the Syncfusion.PivotGridConverter.Wpf.dll assembly to your application and include the namespace Syncfusion.Windows.Controls.PivotGrid.Converter to access the GridCsvExport class.

    Now, define the pivot grid control and bind the data source along with pivot rows, pivot columns, and pivot calculations. Create an instance of GridCsvExport class and then invoke the Export method in it. OpenFileDialog and SaveFileDialog options are used to save the exported file in the preferred location.

    Refer to the following code sample.

  • c#
  • private void Button_Export(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)) {
        ////Export to CSV document
        SaveFileDialog savedialog = new SaveFileDialog();
        savedialog.AddExtension = true;
        savedialog.FileName = "Sample";
        savedialog.DefaultExt = "CSV";
        savedialog.Filter = "CSV file (.csv)|*.csv";
        if (savedialog.ShowDialog() == true) {
            fileName = savedialog.FileName;
            GridCsvExport csvExport = new GridCsvExport(pivotGrid);
            csvExport.Delimiter = ",";
            csvExport.Export(fileName);
        }
    }
