A data trend was exported as a csv file. But after opening it with Excel it looks ugly. Can we format columns, rows, choose proper fonts, colors... using script? Can we recreate original trend as a graphic?
regards, Waldemar

What you're describing is not an option with the .CSV format. .CSV is simply lists of data without formatting. Once you open the .CSV file in Excel, the formatting you are describing is possible using Microsoft Excel.

In iX Developer 2.0 scheduled for April, we will have a new feature called "Reporting". This will allow you to export your trend data as an .XLS (Excel File) with much of that formatting such as a trend graphic. To do this however, you also will need to use Excel to pre-configure the layout of how your Excel files will export. There will be some documentation and sample Excel files to get you started.

Sure, if you know how to build that type of file with C# code. You might have a look at this library to help you get started:

XLS files will not be officially supported until the next release of iX Developer (2.0).
