Saving ExcelWriter and WordWriter files

Problem

What options are available for saving an ExcelWriter or WordWriter generated file?

Solution

ExcelTemplate.SaveExcelApplication.SaveWordTemplate.Save, and WordApplication.Save all have the same four output options:

  • Save to disk – saves the generated file on the server
  • Save to an IO stream – streams the file to the specified IO stream or class derived from System.IO.Stream
  • Stream to the client as an attachment
  • Stream to the client as an inline file – If the user is using Internet Explorer, the file will be opened in the browser using IE’s inline browsing option. Otherwise, the file will be streamed to client.
