Create WorkSheetName property for RadGrid when exporting to XLSX
There should be RadGrid.ExportSettings.WorksheetName property to name a Sheet inside the Excel file, instead of having it named after the RadGrid.ExportSettings.FileName property as well as to avoid additional coding to Work around this.

Thanks for sharing that idea for a built-in feature!

Currently, one way to set the name of the sheet in the exported Excel file is by using the InfrastructureExporting event of RadGrid.

Sample C# code:

protected void RadGrid1_InfrastructureExporting(object sender, GridInfrastructureExportingEventArgs e)
    ExportStructure.ExportStructure structure = e.ExportStructure;
    // Render the structure to XLSX format and return it to a byte array
    ExportStructure.XlsxRenderer renderer = new ExportStructure.XlsxRenderer(structure);
    byte[] xlsxByteArray = renderer.Render();
    // create an format provider instance
    XLSX.XlsxFormatProvider formatProvider = new XLSX.XlsxFormatProvider();
    // import the newly created document into a Workbook
    WB.Workbook myWorkbook = formatProvider.Import(xlsxByteArray);
    myWorkbook.Worksheets[0].Name = "MySheet";
    // once finished with changes convert the workbook back to byte array
    byte[] data = formatProvider.Export(myWorkbook);
    // return the byte array for downloading.
    Response.ContentType = "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet";
    Response.AppendHeader("Content-Disposition", string.Format("attachment; filename={0}.xlsx", RadGrid1.ExportSettings.FileName));
