Name Type Description
stream Stream

A Stream object to which the created XLS file should be sent.


Once the document export has started, it will run until the resulting document is complete and cannot be interrupted or canceled in the process.

Use this method to export a report in XLS format using its current XLS-specific export options.

These options are represented by the XlsExportOptions object returned by the ExportOptions.Xls property of a printing system's PrintingSystemBase.ExportOptions. This object provides the XlExportOptionsBase.ShowGridLines, XlExportOptionsBase.TextExportMode and other properties which are intended to specify parameters of the resulting XLS file.

If you want to ignore current export options of a report, and use your specific settings when a report is exported to XLS, you should use the overloaded PrintingSystemBase.ExportToXls method with the options parameter.

For more information, see Export to XLS.
