Export Data In Excel Using Visualforce Page

Here in below example I have a VF Page “AccountDetails.vf” with parameter of account Id. In that VF Page I’m showing the Account record respective Contacts. And a button that export the Contact records to excel sheet. Another VF Page “ContactExportToExcel.vf” for excel.

Viualforce Page: AccountDetails.vf

<apex:page standardController="Account" extensions="ContactExportToExcel">
        <apex:pageBlock title="Hello {!$User.FirstName}!">
            You are viewing the {!account.name} account.
        <apex:pageBlock title="Contacts">
            <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!account.Contacts}" var="contact">
                <apex:column value="{!contact.Name}"/>
                <apex:column value="{!contact.Email}"/>
                <apex:column value="{!contact.Phone}"/>
        <apex:commandButton value="Export To Excel" Action="{!ExportToExcel}"/>  

Remember to pass an Account ID as a query string to this page.


public with sharing class ContactExportToExcel {
    Public List<String> selectedFieldsList {get;set;}
    Public List<Contact> conList {get;set;}
    public ContactExportToExcel(ApexPages.StandardController stdCtrl) {
        Account acc = (Account)stdCtrl.getRecord();
        conList = New List<Contact>();
        conList = [Select Id, Name, Email, Phone From Contact Where AccountId =: acc.Id];
    Public PageReference ExportToExcel(){
        selectedFieldsList = New List<string>();
        PageReference pgRef = New Pagereference('/apex'+'/ContactExportToExcel');
        return pgRef;

Visualforce Page: ContactExportToExcel.vf

<apex:page standardController="Account" extensions="ContactExportToExcel" contentType="application/vnd.ms-excel#Contacts.xls" cache="true">
    <apex:pageBlock >
        <apex:pageblocktable value="{!conList }" var="tab">
            <apex:repeat value="{!selectedFieldsList}" var="field">
                <apex:column value="{!tab[field]}"/>

Get Map Result From SOQL Query in Salesforce

//Creating Map with account id as key and account record as value
Map<Id,Account> accountMap = new Map<Id,Account>([SELECT Id, Name, Site, Rating, AccountNumber From Account LIMIT 100]);
//Getting list of account using map.values method
List<account> accList = accountMap.values();
//Getting set of account Id's using map.keySet method
Set<Id> accIdSet = accountMap.keySet();
//Getting list of account Id's using list.addAll method
List<Id> accIdList.addAll(accIdSet);

SOQL For Loop

Biswajeet   March 19, 2014   No Comments on SOQL For Loop

The SOQL for loops iterate over ALL the sObjects returned by a SOQL query. Here is the syntax for the for loop in SOQL:

Option 1 – (Include the SOQL in the loop definition):

for (someVariables : [soql_query])
    //Your Code

Note: The variables above must be of the same type as the sObject that are returned by the soql_query. Here’s an example below of a simple for loop function that uses the clauses WHERE and LIKE:

String s = ‘Biswajeet Samal’;
For ( Lead a : [SELECT Id, Name from Lead where Name = : (s)])
    //Your Code

Option 2 – (Create a list of results (sObject list) first and then loop through them):

// Create a list of account records from a SOQL query
Account[] accs = [SELECT Id, Name FROM Account WHERE Name =  'Biswajeet Samal'];
// Loop through the list and update the Name field
for(Account a : accs){
   a.Name = 'Biswajeet Samal';
