File export not working with paging

Link to test case:
Debugger code (debug.datatables.net):
Error messages shown:
Description of problem: I am trying to use the paging and file export on the same table in an MVC web app.. I have the following in a script section on the view with the table:

$(document).ready(function () {
            $('#suspended').DataTable();
        });

        $(document).ready(function () {
            $('#suspended').DataTable({
                dom: 'Bfrtip',
                buttons: [
                    'copy', 'csv', 'excel', 'pdf', 'print'
                ]
            });
        });

When I go to that page I get an error saying the table can't be re-initialized. How do I initialize the table with the file export options and the paging?

    $(document).ready(function () {
                $('#suspended').DataTable();
            });
    

    Remove that code.

    That gives me the paging but not the file export options

    That gives me the paging but not the file export options

    Have you loaded the required buttons CSS and JS files? Use the Download Builder to get the files.

    If you still need help please post a link to your page or a test case showing the issue so we can help debug.

    It isn't a live site yet so I can't provide a link. It is a .Net MVC Web App. I have the datatables.js package installed through nuget. I only need to be able to export to CSV for these reports.

    Here is the _layout page

    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8" />
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

        @Scripts.Render("~/bundles/modernizr")

    <body>

            <button class="navbar-toggler" type="button" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbarSupportedContent" aria-controls="navbarSupportedContent" aria-expanded="false" aria-label="Toggle navigation">
                <span class="navbar-toggler-icon"></span>
            </button>
            <div class="collapse navbar-collapse" id="navbarSupportedContent">
                <ul class="navbar-nav mr-auto">

    the view:

            });

    and the bundlesconfig

    I am not sure how I can make a test case for it. It is a .net MVC web app. I have posted my _layout, view, and bundlesconfig below. I just need to be able to use the CSV file export.

    bundles:

    bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/jquery").Include(
                            "~/Scripts/jquery-{version}.js",
                            "~/Scripts/DataTables/jquery.dataTables.min.js",
                            "~/Scripts/DataTables/dataTables.buttons.min.js",
                            "~/Scripts/jzip.min.js",
                            "~/Scripts/DataTables/buttons.html5.min.js",
                            "~/Scripts/DataTables/buttons.print.min.js"
                            ));
     bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/bootstrap").Include(
                          //"~/Scripts", "*.js", true
                          "~/Scripts/DataTables/dataTables.bootstrap.js",
                          "~/Scripts/DataTables/jquery.dataTables.js",
                          "~/Scripts/bootstrap.js"
                          //"~/Scripts/jszip.js",
                          ));
    bundles.Add(new StyleBundle("~/Content/css").IncludeDirectory(
                            "~/Content", "*.css", true

    It looks like you're missing some of the libraries still (for example pdfmake). If you look at this example here, ensure you have the necessary files listed on the Javascript and CSS tabs beneath the table.

            $(document).ready(function () {
                $('#states').DataTable();
            });
     
            //$(document).ready(function () {
            //    $('#states').DataTable({
            //        dom: 'Bfrtip',

            //        ]
            //    });
            //});
    

    Remove the first "$(document).ready(function ()" and uncomment the other one.

    This is what I have for my bundles now:

    bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/jquery").Include(
                            "~/Scripts/jquery-{version}.js",
                            "~/Scripts/DataTables/jquery.dataTables.js",
                            "~/Scripts/DataTables/dataTables.buttons.js",
                            "~/Scripts/jzip.min.js",
                            "~/Scripts/pdfmake/pdfmake.min.js",
                            "~/Scripts/pdfmake/vfs_fonts.js,",
                            "~/Scripts/DataTables/buttons.html5.min.js",
                            "~/Scripts/DataTables/buttons.print.min.js"
                            ));
    bundles.Add(new ScriptBundle("~/bundles/bootstrap").Include(
                          "~/Scripts/DataTables/dataTables.bootstrap.js",
                          "~/Scripts/DataTables/jquery.dataTables.js",
                          "~/Scripts/bootstrap.js"
                          ));
    bundles.Add(new StyleBundle("~/Content/css").Include(
                          "~/Content/DataTables/css/jquery.dataTables.css",
                          "~/Content/DataTables/css/buttons.dataTables.css",
                          "~/Content/DataTables/css/dataTables.bootstrap.css",
                          "~/Content/DataTables/css/responsive.bootstrap.css",
                          "~/Content/DataTables/css/responsive.dataTables.css",
                          "~/Content/bootstrap.css",
                          "~/Content/site.css"
                          ));
    

    I removed the first "$(document).ready(function ()" and uncommented the other. The only change is that now the select number of results to show dropdown is gone but there are still no file export buttons.

    The only change is that now the select number of results to show dropdown is gone but there are still no file export buttons.

    See this FAQ.

    Looks like the biggest problem is you are loading jquery.dataTables.js twice (lines 3 and 13) which will cause problems. Try removing line 13.

    That did it! I didn't even see that second import there. Thank you all so much for your help. This was my first time using this DataTables plugin and I was driving myself crazy trying to figure it out.
