If you see an interesting data in MVC application, we expect to be able to download it as Excel spreadsheet. If the application cannot do it, then there is no use telling the user that it is too difficult.

In this post we’ll show you how to build an Excel view Engine for ASP.NET. You’ll see how to apply the MVC framework and design pattern to solve the common recurring problem.
