2820531 - Exporting to XLSX from a story does not support Scope in SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC)


  • Exporting data from a SAP Analytics Cloud story with XLSX file type does not allow option Scope "All"
  • Export is equivalent to Scope "point of view" for export with CSV file type


  • SAP Analytics Cloud 2019.14

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open any story and select a cell in a table
  2. On the context menu to the right of the table choose the "Export" option in the "More Actions" drop down list (three dots at top of menu)
  3. Choose "XLSX" file type. Notice that Scope option dissapears.


  • The Scope option is currently not planned to be supported for the XSLX export, only for CSV.
  • XLSX export is equivalent to "point of view" and cannot be changed.


The only workaround for the moment is to expand the cells in the table to contain all the data that you wish to export before choosing this option.

Note that by default only 500 rows are shown in the table.

You can extend the 500 shown rows via the small info icon in the table header to a bigger number e.g. 2500 before exporting to XSLX.
