While exporting to excel, Is there a way to restrict the format for date columns like 'dd\mm\yy'. And should not allow user to enter any other format on the excel.

If you want to set data format on a column, You need to write code in GetDataParams event.
Try to use the following example code,

Code: Select all
private void cellExport1_GetDataParams(object sender, Spire.DataExport.EventArgs.DataParamsEventArgs e)
      if (e.Col == 1)
            e.FormatText = "dd/MM/yy";
