Run a BI Publisher based report through process scheduler to Report Manager with WEB/XLS output. Open the report via Excel from the Report Manager then select Enable Editing, this will display the blue Oracle sign on screen instead of opening the file. The issue does not occur if hitting 'save' instead of 'open'.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

2. Click the report output link to open the report
3. Select Open
4. Select Enable Editing
5. Blue sign on screen
Note: This may only occur on the 1st time around after selecting Enable Editing, the 2nd time that button is not displayed and no blue screen appears.
