MicroStrategy - Export


What is the potential work-around for browser issue with exporting to Excel:

For IE Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Internet Explorer > Internet Control Panel > Security Page > Internet Zone > Allow File Downloads will give you control for Internet Explorer.

Look under Internet Options.

This dialog box is expected when you have a version of Excel installed that is 2007 or later. The following Microsoft tech note explains more about why this dialog shows in new versions of Excel: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948615. One way to have this dialog box not show up when export documents from Web is to change a setting in the MicroStrategy Web Preferences. Within the Web Preferences, you can navigate to export reports > Excel options and switch the Excel version to 2007 or newer versions. You should not see the dialog box pop up afterwards.

How can we change the Export preferences?

We can change some export preferences while editing a report using Desktop. We can also change the export preferences using MicroStrategy Web Preferences screen.
