Problem in Export to Excel using Jexcel api

Hi,

Iam implementing Export to Excel functionality using Jexcel api in my dynpage coding.

Say I have given excel sheet name as MySampleExcel.xls in the coding.

1. I click on Export to Excel button - > open, an excel sheet is opened with the values exported to it from the backend.
2. If you see the excel sheet name in the top left corner, it is displaying as MySampleExcel(1). Next time, when you open , it is displaying MySampleExcel[2]. If you try to do "Save As" under File menu, it is saving with the numbers at the end of filename which is something like:

MySampleExcel[2]
MySampleExcel[3]
MySampleExcel(1)

It is randomly generating these numbers.

What could be the problem? Please suggest.

Regards,

My guess would be that the browser sees that a file called MySampleExcel.xls already exists, so it gives it a new, distinctive name in order to avoid overwriting the existing one.

Hi,

The issue is happening with the IE Browser. we have no issue when we click on " export excel " > " save".

we find the issue ( observation ) only when we click on " export excel " > "open".

filename(n).xls gets opened.

can we make it as filename.xls?.

Please Suggest.

Thanks in Advance.

There's so much to learn in this industry, and not everybody has the necessary interest.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
