    Hello community

     

    I have SDM 14.1 with CUM 4, I updated yesterday and today the export button performs the export in xlsx format but when opening this file in excel the following error appears

     

    "Excel can not open the .xlsx export file because the format or extension is not valid. Verify that the file has not been corrupted and that the file extension matches the file format"

     

     

    Before the uptade this work correctly

     

    Please, if you know how to solve this error let me know .

     

     

    Best regards
