After upgrading to PT 8.57, when attempting to run PS Query to Excel output the results only display the header in the generated Excel file or sometimes on opening the output the below error is received:


"We found a problem with some content in 'xxxx.xlsx'. Do you want us to try to recover as much as we can? If you trust the source of this workbook, click Yes.".

 If 'Run to HTML' or 'Run to XML' is selected then the process works fine and the results are good.

Following entries appear in Stderr file:

" seeMemoryINFO: POI's Source - file:$PS_APP_HOME/appserv/class/apache-tika-app-1.6.jar!/org/apache/poi/poifs/filesystem/POIFSFileSystem.class seeMemoryINFO: POI version - 3.11-beta"

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login PIA.
2. Navigate to Reporting Tools > Query Manager or Query Viewer.
