Simple Excel Export

I’v been looking at many Excel extensions but they were no good to me , because:

  1. Some are not working/interfering with the url

  2. Others require a special gridView that later will be exported - this is no good to be because my grid is already an extension by itself.

What I am looking for is to be able to export the chosen model’s bd table into an excel file.

can anyone suggest an extension for that?



Not tested this but a quick google results in:

It appears you can create a comma separated string from a query result and just change some page headers to download a csv which excel can then read. To do this in Yii you can do a $this->renderPartial(‘view.php’) in a new browser window.

All in all it should just be a few lines of code. You can also try a Google search yourself for other articles.
