<script language="text/javascript">

AJS.$(document).ready(function() {
console.log("Hello I am abc");
exportToExcel();
});
function exportToExcel(){

var uri = 'data&colon;application/vnd.ms-excel;base64,';
var template = '<html xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40"><head><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml><x:ExcelWorkbook><x:ExcelWorksheets><x:ExcelWorksheet><x:Name>{worksheet}</x:Name><x:WorksheetOptions><x:DisplayGridlines/></x:WorksheetOptions></x:ExcelWorksheet></x:ExcelWorksheets></x:ExcelWorkbook></xml><![endif]--></head><body><table>{table}</table></body></html>';

var table1 = '<table>';

AJS.$('#customfieldmodule .property-list li').each(function() {
var temp = this.innerText;
console.log(temp);
var res1 = temp.substr(0,temp.indexOf(':'));
var res2 = temp.substr(temp.indexOf(':')+1);
