The below warning message pops up when opening an mHTML file exported from a BQY section using the xls extension with Microsoft Office 2007:
"The file you are trying to open, <FILE_NAME>, is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now?"
Steps to reproduce:
- Log in to Workspace
- Open any BQY document in iHTML mode
- Select any section within the document
- Navigate to "File" -> "Export" -> "Excel (*.mhtml)"
- The product prompts the user to save locally a file with the xls extension
(rather than mhtml as expected)
- Open the resulting xls file with Microsoft Office 2007: the warning message appears.
- Clicking on "Yes" allows the file to get opened properly.
