For a requirement where i work, i needed to make a export to excel feature in every screen of an application, that's why and created a small library to create a excel file using NPOI(a c# library to create excel files without excel) that receive a list of any object and create the excel file. Give it a try and let me know your ideas or comments.

This could be handy, but I wonder if there are any advantages over exporting to something simpler like CSV or tab-delimited text?

In my case, the users export the data to excel to create charts and do some manipulation of the data, exporting to csv implies that they need to save the file as excel and then start to work, exporting directly to excel saves they one step (convert the csv to excel).

Maybe later add it as a feature(export to csv) or another format(specified char delimiter, etc).

That makes sense, I was just curious if it did anything special with data types or whatnot. Thanks for the follow-up.
