Export To Excel From Discoverer Plus Not Automatically Opening Workbook
Last updated on JANUARY 22, 2016
Applies to:Oracle Discoverer - Version 220.127.116.11.0 to 18.104.22.168.0 [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
In Discoverer Plus, when exporting a report to Excel (through File --> Export --> Pick Excel or by pressing button or link export to Excel) the report (Workbook) does not open automatically.
Upon a successful export there is a checkbox that says "Open the first exported sheet".
That box is checked, but the export never opens automatically. The user exports, but nothing opens automatically. They need to go find the folder it exported to and double click to open.
This issue seems to be related to the local Java Plug-In versions that are version 1.6.0_23 or higher as customers have noticed this issue in Discoverer Plus 10g and 11g after updating the Java version past 1.6.0_22.
