    Adding Custom Section in Umbraco backend to export data from external

    Hi Guys,

    I have the following requirement.

    In the Umbraco 4.7. backend, I need to provide options for exporting data to csv/delimited text file from an external database.

    It should be like a custom page/user control with fromdate, todate and a button to export the data to csv/delimited text file.

    I think this can be done using adding a section in umbraco backend.

    But I am not sure about how to approach for export functionality. Could anyone please point me on the right direction?

    no need for a custom section IMO, just build a user control that'll be hosted as a dashboard control in any of the existing sections.
