Post subject: Fix Pack for Office 2016

Hi

My client wants to export BOXI reports to Excel using Office 2016.
Is there a fix pack to allow this export ?

Has anyone else done exports into Office 2016 .xlsx format ?

Thanks

Steve

Technically, that is not what is happening.

Webi supports exporting in both .xls and .xlsx formats. You don't mention what version of BOXI your client is running - they may need to upgrade.

You can then use Excel to open either file (.xls or .xlsx ).
These formats have been supported by Office since Excel 2007, and Office 2016 will continue to support either file format.

XI3 supports exporting to .xlsx format as of SP6, but it was broken and not working until FP 6.2. See SAP Note 1827176 for more info.

Note that this only enables exporting to .xlsx from within WebI; not scheduling a document to .xlsx. That is not supported till BI4.
