Unify interaction with the generation of Microsoft Excel documents for the different languages generated. It allows you to generate and handle Microsoft Excel worksheets. In addition, the ExcelCells data type is implemented internally and is used to handle the group of cells contained in the worksheet.
An important advantage that this implementation has over the previous ones is that spreadsheets are handled with an object-oriented model and it is no longer necessary to control Handles.
Languages .NET, Java
If &ExcelDocument.ErrCode <> 0
&ExcelDocument.Cells(1,1).Text = 'Customers list'
&ExcelDocument.Cells(1,1).Bold = 1
&ExcelDocument.Cells(1,1).Color = RGB(0, 0, 255)
&ExcelDocument.Cells(1,1).Size = 10
&ExcelDocument.Cells(3,1).Text = 'Customer Id'
&ExcelDocument.Cells(3,1).Italic = 1
&ExcelDocument.Cells(3,1).Bold = 1
&row = 4
&col = 1
For Each Line in Grid
&ExcelDocument.Cells(&row,&col).Number = CustomerId
&ExcelDocument.Cells(&row,&col).Color = RGB(0, 0, 255)
&row += 1
There are two possible implementations:
- EPPLUS: Genexus uses this implementation when xlsx file extension is configured (which is recommendable). Check here for more information.
- ExcelLite DLL: Genexus uses this implementation when the necessary file - GemBox.Spreadsheet.dll - is available after installing GemBox's spreadsheet software
Note: The only way to generate the proprietary xls files is using ExcelLite.
