Please send me your template and sample code. Thank you.


Not using a template but heres the code I am using

public void ExportToExcel(DataTable dtData, string sFileName, string sWorkSheetName, bool bOpenInExcel)


Aspose.Excel.Excel myExcel = new Aspose.Excel.Excel();

Aspose.Excel.Worksheet myWorkSheet = myExcel.Worksheets[0];

myWorkSheet.Name = sWorkSheetName;

Aspose.Excel.Cells myCells = myWorkSheet.Cells;

myCells.ImportDataTable(dtData, this.ShowFieldNames, 0 ,0, dtData.Rows.Count, dtData.Columns.Count, false, “mm/dd/yyyy”);



int iLoc = sFileName.LastIndexOf(@"");

sFileName = sFileName.Substring(iLoc + 1);

myExcel.Save(sFileName, Aspose.Excel.SaveType.OpenInExcel, Aspose.Excel.FileFormatType.Default, System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Response);





And heres the call to the method

myExport.ExportToExcel(dsExcel.Tables[0], @“d:\maintain\docs” + sFileName, “Form Manager”, false);


I tried your code and found the same error. It’s caused by missing the path “d:\maintain\docs”. Have you already created it in your machine?

And please try to use the following code to see if it works fine:

myExport.ExportToExcel(dsExcel.Tables[0], sFileName, “Form Manager”, true);

Since your program is a web application, please check if your code has the right to access local directory.


Has the way permissions changed recently? I got the file to create but when it run again it doesnt overwrite the old file.


No, I haven’t change the permissions. The permissions depend on your settings. Do you mean that your program creates the file on disk successfully the first time but fails to overwrite the old file when running again?


Exactly. How do I allow the overwrite to occur?


It looks like that your web application didn’t release the file resource. I made some change in Aspose.Excel to avoid this. Please try this attached v2.9.2.1.


Works great now!

Thanks for the quick fix and great support as always.
