Symptoms

You've created an FR report with a dimension in the page axis.  More than 100 members are selected for this dimension.  When the report is run in Workspace and then exported to Excel, an error is thrown: "Excel cannot open the file 'xxxx' because the file format or file extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file  extension matches the format of the file."

The report exports without error if fewer than 100 members are defined on the page axis.
