c# – How to add xml schema/design file to Excel Interop?

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


I am creating an excel file using a data table in excel interop

Price           Profit/Loss%

250.8982989       0.04301071

I have a schema file which has details for design as
1) make all headers bold
2) column definition (weather,string,percentage)

I used this file in fast report export but as such i have to use interop for excel export is there a way i can add that schema file

  Excel.Application excelApp = new Excel.Application();

            //Create an Excel workbook instance and open it from the predefined location
            Excel.Workbook excelWorkBook = excelApp.Workbooks.Add(Excel.XlWBATemplate.xlWBATWorksheet);

            //Add a new worksheet to workbook with the Datatable name
            Excel.Worksheet excelWorkSheet = (Excel.Worksheet)excelWorkBook.Sheets.Add();

            for (int i = 1; i < table.Columns.Count + 1; i++)
                excelWorkSheet.Cells[1, i] = table.Columns[i - 1].ColumnName;

            for (int j = 0; j < table.Rows.Count; j++)
                for (int k = 0; k < table.Columns.Count; k++)
                    excelWorkSheet.Cells[j + 2, k + 1] = table.Rows[j].ItemArray[k].ToString();

            excelWorkBook.SaveAs(@"D:\sample excel.xls");

i want to show this value in bold and format as % 0.04301071

make this value Bold and round 250.8982989

This all information will be stored in a schema file i want to load that file

or else i want to load that cell as per the columns datatype in datatable

I have tried :-

clmnrange.NumberFormat = (Object)table.Columns[k - 1].DataType;

but it is raising an exception


How to&Answers:

As mentioned in above comment:

The NumberFormat property takes a string that uses Excel’s formatting
syntax. For example formatting as a percentage (up to) 8 decimal
places is “0.




Here is an example that someone else provided showing how to implement the type of numberingFormat you are describing:

WorkbookStylesPart sp = workbookPart.AddNewPart<WorkbookStylesPart>();

Create a stylesheet:

sp.Stylesheet = new Stylesheet();

Create a numberingFormat:

sp.Stylesheet.NumberingFormats = new NumberingFormats();
// #.##% is also Excel style index 1

NumberingFormat nf2decimal = new NumberingFormat();
nf2decimal.NumberFormatId = UInt32Value.FromUInt32(3453);
nf2decimal.FormatCode = StringValue.FromString("0.0%");
