There are few limitation in the way you can download the excel from Web UI. The standard functionality of Export to Excel have been coded by the Framework and there is a lot of runtime code that is generated during the call. Moreover the Pop Up that comes up after such an event is not a Web UI pop Up, it's a Windows Pop Up , so the coding from the Framework ensures that it call Windows API and then the excel sheet is opened with the necessary data.

It may be possible by making use of some Javascript code, which i am not too sure and even SAP best practices advices you not to do such coding.
