3204940 - Search Results file for Financial transactions contain HTML tags/code


When admin goes to export the Download Search Results file from within Financial Transactions, the file contains HTML tags/code 

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Finance > Financial Transactions
  2. Select your search criteria and Search
  3. Select Download Search Results
  4. Note the HTML code/tags in the Item/Material column


The tags displayed within the Download Search results csv file cannot be removed as these are there to highlight in bold and format of what is being displayed on the UI itself.

Therefore this is expected from LMS.

There is a Financial Transaction report from the SAC (People Analytics) reporting feature which can used as an alternative.
