I have a data view list made using a linked data source of several SP lists. I tried to make it so that the data view list can be exported out as Excel, just like SP list. Is this possible?

I tried to follow the solution in here - Export a joined view but somehow it didn't work for me. Any other Javascript plugin that i can use to make this work? Or is there any way i can enable export function on data view using Sharepoint designer?

  • @RamanaViswanadha thanks. I did followed that too, but didn't work with me. Not sure if i got the table ID right. Which one is the table ID that the code refers too? Is it the web part ID?

  • There should be an attribute called just "id" on the html tag of your table. But what I ended up doing was exporting my webpart, and then edited the exported file in notepad to add an Id attribute that i can use. After which i uploaded it back onto sharepoint. Apr 11, 2016 at 13:16
