Create Excel File From DataTable

Hello Friends,
Many times we need to create Excel files in our application using existing Data.
I have figured out a class which will help to create excel file by just passing DataTable and preferred location to generate on server.
please download the cs file from here .. and use it :)

here is full code

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Data;
using System.Xml;


    public class ExcelHelper
    {
        private static readonly ExcelHelper _instance = new ExcelHelper();

        public static ExcelHelper Instance
        {
            get { return _instance; }
        }
        /// <summary>
        /// Create one Excel-XML-Document with SpreadsheetML from a DataTable
        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="dataSource">Datasource which would be exported in Excel</param>
        /// <param name="fileName">Name of exported file</param>
        public void Create(DataTable dtSource, string strFileName)
        {
            // Create XMLWriter
            using (XmlTextWriter xtwWriter = new XmlTextWriter(strFileName, Encoding.UTF8))
            {

                //Format the output file for reading easier
                xtwWriter.Formatting = Formatting.Indented;

                // <?xml version="1.0"?>
                xtwWriter.WriteStartDocument();
