How to export table data in excel file in AX 2012

Hi Experts,

We have inbuilt classes to import/export data into excel file. We have robust features available where we can design worksheet, format text  & secure document beside just importing/exporting.

Lets start with today’s stuff on exporting data outside of AX into excel file. The following code writes table data into xls file.

SysExcelApplication     application;
SysExcelWorkbooks       workbooks;
SysExcelWorkbook        workbook;
SysExcelWorksheets      worksheets;
SysExcelWorksheet       worksheet;
SysExcelCells           cells;
SysExcelCell            cell;
SysExcelFont            font;
int                     row;
YourTable yourTable;

// intializing classes to export excel
application = SysExcelApplication::construct();
workbooks = application.workbooks();
workbook = workbooks.add();
worksheets = workbook.worksheets();
worksheet = worksheets.itemFromNum(1);
cells = worksheet.cells();

// Setting Header values
cell = cells.item(1, 1);
font = cell.font();

cell = cells.item(1, 2);
font = cell.font();
row = 1;

// inserting data row wise
while select yourTable
cell = cells.item(row, 1);
cell = cells.item(row, 2);
