When users attempt to Export certain FR snapshot reports with ampersand in the report name to Excel through EPM workspace (File --> Export to Excel), the following Excel error message pops-up:

"Excel found unreadable content in '<report name>' Do you want to recover the contents of this workbook?" Clicking Yes results in a second Excel error message "Could not open '<path and filename>.'

Renaming the report to remove the ampersand allow the export to complete successfully.
