Salesforce: generating Excel files from VisualForce APEX pages

I have been working recently with Salesforce, and generating Excel files was not working for me.
It should have been as easy as changing the apex:page contentType property, but its output was like:

"<table id="j_id0:j_id1" border="0" cellpadding="0"...."

My problem was using <apex:column>whatever</apex:column>.
Instead, you should use <apex:column value="whatever" /> and it should work.

Hope this helps.



The next time I read a blog,

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
