IXlTable Interface

Represents a table in a worksheet.

Namespace: DevExpress.Export.Xl

Assembly: DevExpress.Printing.v21.2.Core.dll


public interface IXlTable


To manage data more easily and effectively, you can format a cell range containing related data as a table. Table generation starts by calling the IXlRow.BeginTable method and ends when the IXlRow.EndTable method is called. After table export is initiated, you can utilize the following functionalities to fine-tune your table.

All tables in a worksheet are stored in the read-only IXlTableCollection collection that is returned by the IXlSheet.Tables property.


IXlTable table;
// Specify an array containing column headings for a table.
string[] columnNames = new string[] { "Product", "Category", "Amount" };

// Create the first row in the worksheet from which the table starts.
using (IXlRow row = sheet.CreateRow())
    // Start generating the table with a header row displayed.
    table = row.BeginTable(columnNames, true);
    // Specify the total row label.
    table.Columns[0].TotalRowLabel = "Total";
    // Specify the function to calculate the total.
    table.Columns[2].TotalRowFunction = XlTotalRowFunction.Sum;
    // Specify the number format for the "Amount" column and its total cell.
    XlNumberFormat accounting = @"_([$$-409]* #,##0.00_);_([$$-409]* \(#,##0.00\);_([$$-409]* ""-""??_);_(@_)";
    table.Columns[2].DataFormatting = accounting;
    table.Columns[2].TotalRowFormatting = accounting;

// Generate table rows and populate them with data.
using (IXlRow row = sheet.CreateRow())
    row.BulkCells(new object[] { "Camembert Pierrot", "Dairy Products", 17000 }, null);
using (IXlRow row = sheet.CreateRow())
    row.BulkCells(new object[] { "Gnocchi di nonna Alice", "Grains/Cereals", 15500 }, null);
using (IXlRow row = sheet.CreateRow())
    row.BulkCells(new object[] { "Mascarpone Fabioli", "Dairy Products", 15000 }, null);
using (IXlRow row = sheet.CreateRow())
    row.BulkCells(new object[] { "Ravioli Angelo", "Grains/Cereals", 12500 }, null);

// Create the total row and finish the table.
using (IXlRow row = sheet.CreateRow())
    row.EndTable(table, true);
