    Thank you @Apezdr, but I don't think so, I just need date format in excel. But when export the format is "General" and not "Date"

    Does this answer your question?

    If not then maybe start with posting your Datatables init code showing the column and buttons definitions.

    Kevin had a closer example to what you're asking about but the answer is the same, you'll have to dig into the customization option of the excelHtml5 button https://datatables.net/reference/button/excelHtml5.

    A helpful hint, its not easy at all to manipulate the excel document generation at length. I'd see if you can just adjust the date format that datatables spits out and see if it fixes your issue.

    hello,
    When the grid data is exported ,the date columns are exported as "General" datatype. By default this needs to be exported as "Short Date".
    did anyone find a solution for this ?
