OfficeUtils provides advanced export capabilities to Excel and Word documents (available for .NET and Java stacks). It allows to manipulate and generate a document based on a template included in the Resources folder. The document content is manipulated using a set of server actions available in OfficeUtils Service module, called helpers.

Built using NPOI 2.5.5 (.NET stack) and Apache POI 3.11 (Java stack).

Word export features list:

  • Template based export.
  • Replace text placeholders on the template with text and pictures.
  • Populate template tables with data.

Excel export features list:

  • Write data on multiple sheets and sheet coordinates.
  • Use as input the output of RecordListToExcel or specify each one of the cell values   individually.
  • Write data on the platform default format or keeping the format specified on the template.
  • Insert images.
  • Sheets cloning.
  • Cells merging.
  • Apply styles to cells (colors, borders, and alignments).
