Export From Html Table or Database to Excel file

Hello,

I need help solving a problem.

I have a table with values ​​and I wanted to export it to an excel or csv file.

the table I have is generated by a query the database and then it is shown by a table built in html.

I leave an attachment an example of what I have.fff

Anyone have an idea where to start?
thanks

How are you building that table? If you have the raw data in a flow then you can equally generate the CSV format of the data at the same time.

yes , using “template node” and this code

<table style="width:100%">
  <tr>
<th>Index</th> 
<th>Timestamp</th>
<th>Value</th> 
<th>Bool</th>
  </tr>
  <tr ng-repeat="x in msg.payload | limitTo:20">
<td>{{$index}}</td>
<td>{{msg.payload[$index].TIMESTAMP}}</td>
<td>{{msg.payload[$index].VALUE}}</td> 
<td>{{msg.payload[$index].BOOL}}</td>
  </tr>
</table>

Using the CSV node I only got one line.

thanks

So if you are building the html table from an array.

There are many different ways to iterate through this in Node-RED but a good one to learn would be to use a function and some javascript.
Try reading https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_loop_for.asp as well as https://nodered.org/docs/user-guide/messages

If your payload contains an array of objects (like your query results), the csv node will convert that into a string of comma separated values, with individual “lines” separated by a newline character (linux), or by Cr/Nl (on windows):

TIMESTAMP,VALUE,BOOL
1530107171775,5,0
1530107151774,21,0
1530107131774,71,1

FYI, you can simplify your ng-repeat logic by not using the index, something like this:

    <tr ng-repeat="row in msg.payload | limitTo:20">
        <td>{{$index}}</td>
        <td>{{row.TIMESTAMP}}</td>
        <td>{{row.VALUE}}</td> 
        <td>{{row.BOOL}}</td>
    </tr>
<script>
function exportTableToExcel(yourtablename, filename = ''){
    var downloadLink;
    var dataType = 'application/vnd.ms-excel';
    var tableSelect = document.getElementById(yourtablename);
      var tableHTML = tableSelect.outerHTML.replace(/ /g,  '%20');
    filename = filename?filename+'.xls':'Rapport.xls';
    downloadLink = document.createElement("a");
    document.body.appendChild(downloadLink);
    if(navigator.msSaveOrOpenBlob){
        var blob = new Blob(['\ufeff', tableHTML, text], {
            type: dataType
        });
        navigator.msSaveOrOpenBlob( blob, filename);
    }else{
        downloadLink.href = 'data:' + dataType + ', ' + tableHTML;
        downloadLink.download = filename;
        downloadLink.click();
    }
}
    </script>

<div>
   
<button onclick="exportTableToExcel('yourtablename')">SAVE TO EXEL</button>

</div>

Im using this code

Karl

hello,

thank you all for the help and answers.

Karlbo, the function works really well, thanks.

btw, do you have anything similar for .pdf?

thanks

did you find a solution for .pdf??

how to implement this code?

how to implement this code together with the preceding code above mention by cristiano?

This thread is two years old. It would be better if you open a new thread explainng your issue. Thanks.

yes i have something take a screenshoot and print in .pdf
