When trying to view one view reports in excel output format, the output file cannot be successfully opened by excel and following error is received :

Excel cannot open the file filename.xlsx 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.

This issue occurs when the ovr report is executed for large data set. Running the same report with limited number of rows does not throw any error and the excel file is opened successfully.
