Symptoms

When an opening a BI Publisher, (XML Publisher), report run to .XLS format, it opens the report in .HTML rather than native Excel. Since the .XLS file contains embedded images, it does not display properly when viewed through Report Manager. This happens when the underlying format was really HTML and not native XLS.
