CRM 2011 Custom Excel export ribbon button on form RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    we have a very specific request from our customer to implement a new form ribbon button which will exports certain form fields to an Excel file. I found a very good example of how to do that on JSFiddle http://jsfiddle.net/wVejP/1363/
    Unfortunately that Export functionality with Javascript only works in FF and Chrome.
    But I need to make this work in IE. I read that there are restrictions from MS that do not allow Excel exports using Javascript.
    They mention a Workaround on the serverside. But how can my Server side help if I want an Excel "Save as" Dialog on the client side in IE?

    Can someone help me on this and give some advice?

    Best regards,

  • Hi Thorsten,

    I'd do it for word. Create a button in the ribbon that will update a field and then call the Save action. Now at the save message call the plugin that will export the  data into the excel.
