How to use igGridExcelExporter to add data to an existing Excel file

The igGridExcelExport permits exporting a grid to a new Excel file. Is it possible to add the data as a worksheet to an existing Excel file?

    Hi Ray,

    I found another more clean approach for exporting the grid to an existing excel file, without iterating through the whole worksheet.

    You can bind to the headerCellExporting event of the igGridExcelExporter and add the following code snippet:

                            headerCellExporting: function(sender, args) {
                                var headerArr = [];
                                // We will save all the headers coming to our array for retrieval later on
                                if (args.columnIndex === 0) { 
                                    sender._workbook = workbook;
                                    sender._worksheet = sender._workbook.worksheets(1);

    Here is a sample for your reference:

    Please, let me know if you have any questions.
