Questions:

I’m trying to create an excel report that has multiple sheets. each of these sheets has data that comes from a DataTable that results from a SQL query. The inital worksheet is created correctly, however, i’m unable to create the second worksheet. I understand what i’m doing wrong, but i’m just not sure how to add a worksheet using the below code without creating a new excel workbook everything.

I was thinking about just creating the workbook and then just adding sheets. But I cant seem to make it all click.

This is what i’m trying:

static void Main(string[] args)
{
        Excel_FromDataTable(testingTable);
        Excel_FromDataTable(testingTable);
    }
}

private static void Excel_FromDataTable(DataTable dt)
{
    var excel = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application();
    var workbook = excel.Workbooks.Add(true);

    int iCol = 0;
    foreach (DataColumn c in dt.Columns)
    {
        iCol++;
        excel.Cells[1, iCol] = c.ColumnName;
    }

    int iRow = 0;
    foreach (DataRow r in dt.Rows)
    {
        iRow++;
        // add each row's cell data...
        iCol = 0;
        foreach (DataColumn c in dt.Columns)
        {
            iCol++;
            excel.Cells[iRow + 1, iCol] = r[c.ColumnName];
        }
    }
    // Global missing reference for objects we are not defining...
    object missing = System.Reflection.Missing.Value;
    // If wanting to Save the workbook...
    workbook.SaveAs(@"C:\MyExcelWorkBook2.xlsx");
    workbook.Close();
}
How to&Answers:

Consider this

Static void Main()
{

    var excel = new Microsoft.Office.Interop.Excel.Application();
    var workbook = excel.Workbooks.Add(true);

    AddExcelSheet(dt1, workbook);
    AddExcelSheet(dt2, workbook);

    workbook.SaveAs(@"C:\MyExcelWorkBook2.xlsx");
    workbook.Close();

}

private static void AddExcelSheet(DataTable dt, Workbook wb)
{    
    Excel.Sheets sheets = wb.Sheets;
    Excel.Worksheet newSheet = sheets.Add();
    int iCol = 0;
    foreach (DataColumn c in dt.Columns)
    {
        iCol++;
        newSheet.Cells[1, iCol] = c.ColumnName;
    }

    int iRow = 0;
    foreach (DataRow r in dt.Rows)
    {
        iRow++;
        // add each row's cell data...
        iCol = 0;
        foreach (DataColumn c in dt.Columns)
        {
            iCol++;
            newSheet.Cells[iRow + 1, iCol] = r[c.ColumnName];
        }
}
