Export > Data > CSV/Excel In Analysis Results Tab, Displays The Custom Hyperlink URL code Instead Of Actual Value (Doc ID 2749184.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 09, 2021

Applies to:

Business Intelligence Server Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Oracle Analytics Server - Version 5.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After Export-->Data-->Excel or CSV, the code behind the Hyperlink column shows up,  and not the values.

The problem is common across all reports/dashboards with Hyperlinks enabled and export option Export-->Data-->Excel or CSV

This issue doesn't reproduce when export the Report to Excel, CSV or PDF using Export --> Excel or Export ->CSV.

Issue reproduces with or without "Contains HTML Markup" checkbox for the  Formula column enabled.

Steps to reproduce:


1. In Analytics, create a formula column:


2. When you run report, values show as following:


3. When you do  Export->Data->CSV or Excel,  see that instead of value "7 Megapixel Digital Camera" , the code behind the Hyperlink column is shown:

<a href="7 Megapixel Digital Camera" target="_blank">7 Megapixel Digital Camera</a>
