vb.net to Excel data coming from a web service

vb.net to Excel data coming from a web service

vb.net to Excel data coming from a web service

I have inherited a system with no documentation and I cannot open the webservice project to try to pick it apart. So, my users (internal, but the web server is in the DMZ and has no access to our SQL Server except thru this mysterious web service) would like to have a button to export the data to an Excel spreadsheet. I have looked all over teh place and come up with a few options, none of which could I get to work. What I do have is the data is getting placed into a Repeater


Repeater1.DataSource = cl.GetFabricStatus(sql, Session("UserName"), Session("Password")).Tables("GetFabricStatus")

and then before that what I know of the WebService is


Dim cl As New com.kt.www.OnLineStatusWebservice() 

So, what can I do to simply get the data from this Repeater into an Excel file? I supposed I should preface this with I am coming from a Classic ASP background, I am figuring out C# and have to support this vb.net code until I can completely replace it, so in the meantime...



RE: vb.net to Excel data coming from a web service

I ended up re-writing in C# and not using the web service. Thanks for the input!
