Enable Export to Excel for Web Application Template

Exporting to Excel is only available for local desktop applicaitons, but more applications these days are deployed as web applications. The export to Excel feature is incredibly valuable, and would be a great addition to applications deployed to the Web and Cloud.

    Chris,

    Thank you for the suggestion. We have added it to our product backlog and will consider it for a future release.

    Exporting to Excel is possible using some custom code. See http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/vstudio/en-US/5494c41d-bce2-46f6-a1ab-0d09e7004653/lightswitch-html-client-how-to-export-to-excel-or-word?forum=lightswitch to read a few of the solutions provided by the LightSwitch community.

    Thanks,
    Elizabeth Maher, LightSwitch Team

        I completely agree Chris.
        Hopefully they make this possible in the near future. It's a nightmare to try and find an easy way to do this without the built in capability that Desktop applications get.
