In this article I will explain with an example, how to export Grid (GridView) to Excel file using jQuery in ASP.Net Core Razor Pages.
The Grid (GridView) will be exported (converted) to Excel file using the jQuery table2excel plugin in ASP.Net Core Razor Pages.
I have made use of the following table Customers with the schema as follows. CustomerId is an Auto-Increment (Identity) column.

I have already inserted few records in the table.

The Model class consists of the following three properties.
public class Customer
    public int CustomerId { get; set; }
    public string Name { get; set; }
    public string Country { get; set; }
Database Context
Once the Entity Framework is configured and connected to the database table, the Database Context will look as shown below.
Note: For beginners in ASP.Net Core and Entity Framework, please refer my article ASP.Net Core Razor Pages: Simple Entity Framework Tutorial with example. It covers all the information needed for connecting and configuring Entity Framework with ASP.Net Core.
using Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore;
namespace Export_GridView_Excel_jQuery_Razor_Core
    public class DBCtx : DbContext
        public DBCtx(DbContextOptions<DBCtx> options) : base(options)
        public DbSet<Customer> Customers { get; set; }
Razor PageModel (Code-Behind)
The PageModel consists of following Handler method.
Handler method for handling GET operation
Inside this Handler method, all the records are fetched from the Customers table using Entity Framework and assigned to the public property Customers and returned to the Razor Page.
public class IndexModel : PageModel
    private DBCtx Context { get; }
    public IndexModel(DBCtx _context)
        this.Context = _context;
    public List<Customer> Customers { get; set; }
    public void OnGet()
        this.Customers = this.Context.Customers.ToList();
Razor Page (HTML)
Displaying the Records
For displaying the records, an HTML Table is used. A loop will be executed over the Model which will generate the HTML Table rows with the Customer records.
Exporting Grid (GridView) to Excel file
Below the HTML Table, there is an HTML Button element.
Inside the jQuery document ready event handler, the Export Button has been assigned a jQuery Click event handler.
When the Export Button is clicked, the jQuery table2excel plugin is applied to the HTML Table and it is converted (exported) to Excel file.
The jQuery table2excel plugin accepts filename parameter which sets the name of the Excel file.
@model Export_GridView_Excel_jQuery_Razor_Core.Pages.IndexModel
    Layout = null;
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
    <table id="tblCustomers">
            <th>Customer Id</th>
        @foreach (var customer in Model.Customers)
    <input type="submit" id="btnExport" value="Export" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
    <script src="~/Scripts/table2excel.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function () {
            $("#btnExport").click(function () {
                    filename: "Table.xls"
