    Hi there,

    exporting a table to csv gives me the correct date:

    “Anfrage”,”31.10.2021″,”16:00″,”04.11.2021″,”10:00″,”Grömitz”,”Frau X Y”,”+49″,”10.00″

    (the 31.10.2021)

    Using XLS:

    <Cell ss:StyleID=”xls-style-3″><Data ss:Type=”String”>Anfrage</Data></Cell>
    <Cell ss:StyleID=”xls-style-4″><Data ss:Type=”DateTime”>2021-10-30T22:00:00.000Z</Data></Cell>
    <Cell ss:StyleID=”xls-style-5″><Data ss:Type=”String”>16:00</Data></Cell>

    there is the “2021-10-30T22:00:00.000Z”. Its one day earlier.

    Any idea?

    Hello Chris,

    The problem comes from the way the Date object works in JavaScript. What you see in the browser is the date according to your local timezone, the difference in the day comes from the Date object, which converts the date from your local timezone to the UCT Timezone and then transfers it to Excel.

    I suggest storing your dates in format, which clearly states the timezone offset.
    For example, the following date 2020-04-30T21:00:00.000Z will be displayed as 2020-04-30 23:00:00 in the browser if the difference between your timezone and UCT is 2 hours. When you export the table, you will export the original 2020-04-30 21:00:00
    If you want your browser to display the UCT Time without applying your local timezone, you can manipulate the date column with cellsRenderer:

    cellsRenderer: function (row, column, value, rowData) {
        let date = new Date(value);
        return new Intl.DateTimeFormat('de', {timeStyle: "medium",dateStyle: "medium"}).format(date)

    If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again!
