Hi I deployed a web application. After analyzing data imported by user through web browser, I want to send results as an excel file that can be downloaded by user. How should I do that?

Users can upload their files by uigetfile and download result by uiputfile. Please keep in mind that uigetfile and uiputfile are supported in WebApps from R2018b.
The following examples can import users' uploaded CSV file and download Excel file. The downloaded file will be found browser's download folder (for example, if Windows, C:\Users\USERNAME\Downloads)
uigetfile example:
% Button pushed function: UploadButton
function UploadButtonPushed(app, event)
[file, path] = uigetfile({'*.csv*'}, 'File Selector', 'MultiSelect', 'on');
if isequal(file,0)
% Read input file
inpuFilePath = fullfile(path,file);
tbl = readtable(inpuFilePath);
% Do some calculation
app.resultTbl = table;
app.resultTbl.col1 = tbl.col1 + tbl.col2 + tbl.col3;
uiputfile example:
% Button pushed function: DownloadButton
function DownloadButtonPushed(app, event)
[file,path] = uiputfile('results.xlsx');
resultFilePath = fullfile(path,file);
writetable(app.resultTbl, resultFilePath)
Also, I've attached sample mlapp file and csv file for this demo. Please see If compiled as a WebApps, the app would look like this.
Users can download results.xlsx into their machine.

it seems like the uigetdir cannot be supported in web apps. You should show a notification if we use this function when the web app is complied.

Has this been resolved? I believe I am experiencing the exact same issue.
I'm not reading; only writing to an Excel (or .csv, if I have to) file. It works perfectly as an app on my computer, but when deployed, I get the "Starting download for test1.xls" message in log, but never receive a file in my Downloads directory.
I'm using writematrix, rather than writetable, but otherwise, my script looks much like the uiputfile example, above.

This theath has show quite well how to download an excel table using the command writetable. My problem is that I have generated a pdf report with reportgenerator and I want use saveas instead of writetable. But saveas is not supported in webapps.
How can I send the pdf report to the user?.

@Hunter Casillas's solution works great for non-Excel files. Thanks!
