E-QR: Query Download to Excel Filename Issue When Downloading to Excel From 2 Separate Browser Tabs (Doc ID 2883322.1)

Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using multiple browser tabs to run two different queries from Edit mode and exporting to excel will generate an incorrect filename for one of the queries (it will have the NAME of Query B with the DATA of Query A).

Open Query Manager and run 2 Queries from 2 separate browser tabs via Edit-Run, and then Download to Excel.
The first time both queries look good with unique names and correct data, but on downloading the first query again to Excel, the file name remains the same as the last one, although the data is correct.

In case of queries with prompts the header row also incorrectly references the prompt value from tab 2 instead of from current tab 1.

This issue does not occur when choosing 'Run to Excel' directly (without Edit mode).
