Applies to:

Business Intelligence Suite Enterprise Edition - Version 11.1.1.7.140527 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

OBIEE is configured to support multiple "local" languages - for example, English and Chinese - and users select the language when they login to OBIEE.

On OBIEE 11.1.1.7.140114 with the Chinese language selected: when a report is exported to PDF, the resulting PDF file will have the same name as the report, like <report_name>.pdf.

On OBIEE 11.1.1.7.140527 with the Chinese language selected: when a report is exported to PDF, the resulting PDF file will have a name like "saw.pdf" or "saw_#.pdf".

This issue is only encountered with the Chrome web browser; and is not encountered with other web browsers, like IE.

(Note: This issue is not specific to the Chinese language and may also be encountered with other language localizations such as German.)
