In this article I will explain with an example, how to export ASP.Net Table to Excel file using JavaScript.
The ASP.Net Table will be exported (converted) to Excel file using the jQuery table2excel plugin.
Note: jQuery is used in this article only for the use of jQuery plugin.
HTML Markup
The HTML Markup consists of an ASP.Net Table and an ASP.Net Button.
The Button has been assigned with a JavaScript OnClientClick event handler.
<asp:Table ID="tblCustomers" runat="server">
        <asp:TableHeaderCell>Customer Id</asp:TableHeaderCell>
        <asp:TableCell>John Hammond</asp:TableCell>
        <asp:TableCell>United States</asp:TableCell>
        <asp:TableCell>Mudassar Khan</asp:TableCell>
        <asp:TableCell>Suzanne Mathews</asp:TableCell>
        <asp:TableCell>Robert Schidner</asp:TableCell>
<asp:Button ID="btnExport" Text="Export" runat="server" OnClientClick="return Export();"/>
Exporting ASP.Net Table to Excel using JavaScript
When the Export Button is clicked, the JavaScript Export function is called.
Inside the Export function, the jQuery table2excel plugin is applied to the ASP.Net Table and it is converted (exported) to Excel file.
The jQuery table2excel plugin accepts filename parameter which sets the name of the Excel file.
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Scripts/table2excel.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    function Export() {
            filename: "Table.xls"
        return false;
