Goal

On E-Business Suite version 12.2, AP remittance advice generated from EBS cannot be opened at supplier site in MacBook

In 11i, AP remittance advice generated from EBS send to the supplier as excel attachment is works fine.

After Upgrading from 11i to R12, the same AP remittance advice using the latest Oracle BI Publisher 10.1.3.4.2, as excel attachment is not able to open in MacBook.

Need a way to allow the supplier to open the excel attachment in MacBook.

The output file opens in excel just like xml file below:
