  • Remove html tags when exporting to excel #63870



    I am trying to export data to excel from a jqxGrid, however I have cell which displays a number as a link, when I export the sheet the number will be exported as this <"a" href="#">23321</"a">, how can I remove this html tag when I am exporting.
