How to export data to excel from results page

How to export data to excel from results page

Is there a way to export the data from the results page that DataAssist built to an excel spreadsheet format? I am wondering why there would be no export function built into DataAssist? What would be the advantage of DataAssist if you can't export the database?

Please advise. Thanks!

I am using php.

Also, do you know how to clear the search on the results page?

Thanks!

not sure about how to clear seach on results page (unless you mean delete the option to search)

there are a few things out there to export data, one is an extension but not sure if i should be pointing you to another company. google it and you will find one no problem.

cheers

the search results are held in a session variable:
$_SESSION["WADbSearch1_Products_Results"]



you can create a link to clear the results:
<a href="results.php?clear=1">Clear Search</a>

and create an if statement to unset the session based on the clear query string variable:

php:
<?php

if(isset($_GET['clear']) && $_GET['clear'] == 1) {
  unset(
$_SESSION["WADbSearch1_Products_Results"]);
}
?>

It didn't work.

I have attached the file for you to take a look.
Can you please review and tell me why the results are not clearing?
Personally though, I think this should have been included automatically in the DataAssist extension. I mean who wants to view a database and run a search and not be able to clear the results?

Thanks for your help!

move the code to unset the session to line 5 so it will be unset before the DataAssist search code.

Hi Jason,

You were quick with this one! I tried to beat you to it! I got it to work. There is another post on this here: showthread.php?t=114&highlight=clear+result

I found that my trigger was set for "Search_x" so all I did was create a link on my reset button to this: <a href="inventory_Results.php?Search_x=1"> and it worked!

I appreciate all of your help!!!
