Option 1.

Create javascript like as given below.

$('#exportTableToExcel').click(function () {
    var downloadLink;
    var dataType = 'application/';
    var tableSelect = document.getElementById('tableToExcel');
    var tableHTML = tableSelect.outerHTML.replace(/ /g, '%20');
    // Specify file name
    filename = 'myFile' + '.xls' : 'excel_data.xls';
    // Create download link element
    downloadLink = document.createElement("a");
    if (navigator.msSaveOrOpenBlob) {
        var blob = new Blob(['\ufeff', tableHTML], {
            type: dataType
        navigator.msSaveOrOpenBlob(blob, filename);
    } else {
        // Create a link to the file
        downloadLink.href = 'data:' + dataType + ', ' + tableHTML;
        // Setting the file name = filename;
        //triggering the function;

Option 2.

$('#exportTableToExcel').click(function () {
    str = "";
    var tableId = document.getElementById('tableToExcel');
    var rowCount = tableId.rows.length;
    var colCount = tableId.getElementsByTagName("tr")[0].getElementsByTagName("th").length;
    var ExcelApp = new ActiveXObject("Excel.Application");
    var ExcelSheet = new ActiveXObject("Excel.Sheet");
    ExcelSheet.Application.Visible = true;
    for (var i = 0; i < rowCount; i++) {
        for (var j = 0; j < colCount; j++) {
            str = tableId.getElementsByTagName("tr")[i].getElementsByTagName("th")[j].innerHTML;
            ExcelSheet.ActiveSheet.Cells(i + 1, j + 1).Value = str;

Option 3.

 In Chrome, Mozilla and Safari

add link in your html page like as given below

<script src=""></script>


$(function() {
  $('#exportTableToExcel').click(function() {
    var url = 'data:application/,' + encodeURIComponent($('#tableToExcel').html())
    location.href = url
    return false


 I hope I have address html table convert or export to excel in the above using javascript code.Add export functionality in the HTML table without any third-party jQuery plugin or server-side script in the first and second option. You can easily export the html table data list using minimal JavaScript code.In the Option 3  using third party jQuery plugin and export html table data into excel.
