2685864 - Default Approval Value Limit Table Downloading in Different Format in HTML5


You want to download the table from the Define Approval Value Limit regular task, but you noticed the downloaded file comes in a .zip format when you are using the HTML5 UI, whereas in Silverlight the downloaded file comes in .xlsx or .xls format (which are the expected formats).


  • SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon to the HMTL5 version of the system.
  2. Go to the Organizational Management work center.
  3. Open the Define Approval Value Limit regular task.
  4. Click on the Download button.
  5. See the download file is in .zip format.


The file is downloaded in .zp format, because it is being compressed by the system in order to increase the performance in case the list has a lot of data.


To use the file in the .xlsx or .xls formats you can rename the extension of the file from .zip to .xlsx or .xls directly after downloading it.
