HCM Extract (in Excel format .xls) becomes a URL link when extract is run

The HCM Extract that is set to produce an Excel file in the delivery options becomes a URL (eg. https://xxx.xx.oraclecloud.com/xmlpserver/servlet/outputDocument?outputid=3648) after the extract is run instead of producing an excel file. The excel file is turned into a URL. The workaround we do for this for now is to Compile All Formula and validate and the submit the extract again and run the extract again. Then the URL disappears and returns an Excel file already. But after some updates again on the data and upon running the extract again, this problem repeats. The excel file should be produced right away without doing the 'Compile All Formula' and 'Validate' and 'Submit' in Manage HCM Extract again and again every time this happens.
