I have a requirement to check feasibility of saving a datawindow report to '.xlsx' format using an executable built in PowerBuilder 2017 R3. The constraint is that the host machine on which the executable will be running will not have any versions of Microsoft Excel installed. Is this feasible?

I would have tried myself but all my current work machines have MS Office installed and it is difficult to get them uninstalled for trial purpose.

Appreciate any help/ inputs/ thoughts

Hi Arjun,

you can use SaveAs mit XLSX!. It does not need Office. But it only export unformatted raw data!
