I’ve made an simple application with a WebGrid and two buttons.
First button downloads the original XLS file (loaded from disk).
Second button downloads the XLS file from GridWeb.
(I’m using Office 2007)
The differences between the two files are obvious in print preview:
- the original XLS has all the columns in one page but the new one has them one or two columns in one page; this differences can be seen in Excel in “Page Layout > Scale to fit > Page Setup” Width/Height doesn’t match, Portrait/Landscape doesn’t match, Scale mode doesn’t match. All these options should match one by one.
- as a consequence of the above, the page breaks doesn’t match at all.
- the original XLS has has a header that doesn’t apear in the XLS outputed from WebGrid.
I want the outputed xml from WebGrid to be as similar as possible to the original one. At least it shoudn’t lack features and miss page setup options.
I think the orblems are easy to localize and solve now.
