    Default Excel Export

    I'm trying to export a browse to Excel - which I have done successfully in the past.

    When I click the Export to Excel shortcut, nothing seems to happen.

    When I print the browse to an Excel file, there is a "Print to File" dialogue that pops up asking for an output file name (seems odd, since I've already given the file a name in the previous dialogue). This successfully creates a file. However, the file is actually a PDF.

    I'm on a VPS that doesn't have MS Office installed, but I don't believe that should make any difference.

    Can anyone help me resolve this issue?

    Thanks much.

    OK. I figured out that when I use the Excel Export button, the file goes to a temp file buried in the folder directory. I'm assuming it would normally open the Excel app, but since I don't have it installed, it just saves the temp file.

    I wonder if there is a setting to designate where the Excel Export file is saved...

    Thanks.

    Check your View menu, Settings, System, directories for the private and shared paths. I think one of these controls it.

    Thanks, Stan!

    It was the Private Path setting.
