Install ClosedXML via NuGet

If you want to include ClosedXML in your project, you can install it directly from NuGet

To install ClosedXML, run the following command in the Package Manager Console

PM> Install-Package ClosedXML

What can you do with this?

ClosedXML allows you to create Excel files without the Excel application. The typical example is creating Excel reports on a web server.

Example:

using (var workbook = new XLWorkbook())
{
    var worksheet = workbook.Worksheets.Add("Sample Sheet");
    worksheet.Cell("A1").Value = "Hello World!";
    worksheet.Cell("A2").FormulaA1 = "=MID(A1, 7, 5)";
    workbook.SaveAs("HelloWorld.xlsx");
}

Developer guidelines

The OpenXML specification is a large and complicated beast. In order for ClosedXML, the wrapper around OpenXML, to support all the features, we rely on community contributions. Before opening an issue to request a new feature, we'd like to urge you to try to implement it yourself and log a pull request.

Please read the full developer guidelines.
