How do I create a .xlsx file in WF 8.0 App Studio Window server?
I need to save the WF output as .xlsx to import to MS Project. It won’t take the old .xls format. The output file is 27 MB, about 26,000 rows, 35 columns.
If I run with ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K , it came out OK, but can only save as .xls file.
If I run with ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL07, it come out with 0 bytes.
It is not complicated EXCEL, it use SUBHEAD line.
Here is code
TABLE FILE TEST
PRINT field 1
Field 2
….
Field 35
BY filed 1 NOPRINT
BY field 2 NOPRINT
ON field 1 SUBHEAD
“ subhead line 1”
ON field 2 CUBHEAD
“ very long subhead text here, I use <0x to continue for 3 lines”
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL07 (or)
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT EXL2K

thanks,

Emily,

Its PCHOLD FORMAT XLSX.

In my install of WF8008, I had to remove the IBIF_excelservurl from my configuration for it to work properly.

You can neutralize the EXCELSERVURL setting by doing this in the fex:

-* For EXL07
SET EXCELSERVURL=''


For the like of me, I cannot figure out WHY we have to do this.

From the documentation:

Creating Reports With WebFOCUS Language > Choosing a Display Format > Using Excel Display Formats: EXL07, EXL2K, EXL97, EXCEL

Overview of EXL07 Format... Reference: Building the .xlsx Workbook File... Syntax: How to Select the Method for Zipping the .xlsx File...

You designate the method and location where the zipping will occur by setting EXCELSERVURL to a URL (for the WebFOCUS Servlet) or to a blank (for JSCOM3). You can set this value for a specific procedure or for the entire environment.

Specifying the Servlet: SET EXCELSERVURL = http://servername:8080/ibi_apps

Specifying JSCOM3: SET EXCELSERVURL = ''
