Excel files exported from Design Studio


Excel files exported from a Design Studio 1.4 crosstab have always cells with indicator numbers stored as text.

For sure, I know how to converted them into number. But it could be a little risky for end users if they forgot it.

Note that Excel files exported from a Webi application haven't got this issue.

Is it normalĀ  ? Is it possible to avoid it ? Have new 1.6 version also this issue ?

Greetings to all,

Hello Tammy,

Last week we have upgraded our DS to 1.6. You're right : the export to Excel for numbers works.

Best regards,
