File Name Changes When Opening BIP Report In Excel

(Doc ID 2165838.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 26, 2016

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using BI Publisher you open a report (in Excel format) from Internet Explorer (IE). In the Open File Dialog box, IE asks "What do you want to do with Analysis_Report.xlsx"

The name of the report appears correct, but when you open the file, it opens with some other name (xdo).

eg: You run a report and try to open the report in Excel format and in Open File Dialog box , the filename is "Test.xlsx", the file is opened with "xdo" (Read only) as filename.

If you keep this file open and try to run the report again with some changes the report opens with the same name in Excel ie. xdo.
