Default Export Gridview to Excel and Hide column


I have a gridview in my asp.net 2.0 vb application and I export the whole table to Excel using a button. The first column of the gridview is an edit column. When I export it, it just shows up as text in the excel file. How do I remove this column so it doesn't get exported to Excel?

you can easily export DataGrid to Excel in your Excel ASP.NET application with this Excel C# component.

Here is a sample code (to change what columns to export just use another overload of InsertDataTable method):
DataTable people = (DataTable)Session["people"];
// Create excel file.
ExcelFile ef = new ExcelFile();
ExcelWorksheet ws = ef.Worksheets.Add("DataSheet");
ws.InsertDataTable(people, "A1", true);
// Stream file to browser, in required type.
switch (this.RadioButtonList1.SelectedValue)
    case "XLS":
        Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.ms-excel";
        Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" +
    case "XLSX":
        Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.openxmlformats";
        Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" +
        // With XLSX it is a bit more complicated as MS Packaging API
        // can't write directly to Response.OutputStream.
        // Therefore we use temporary MemoryStream.
        MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream();
