SAP Business ByDesign 1802.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Application and User Management;
  2. Click on Data Extraction view;
  3. Select the required Run ID;
  4. In Extraction Files, select the XML file;
  5. Then click on Download;
  6. You will see that the file is corrupt or empty.


The developers are improving the Data Extraction tool and they performed a compression for the resulted file, via zipping it during the download.


To overcome this scenario, please change the file suffix to ".zip" (instead of ".xml") and open the file with a zipping tool (such as WinZip, WinRar, 7zip).
