I am trying to display a report in EXCEL format.

One of the fields in my report is TEXT format TX50

So, it shows up as 5 to 6 lines in HTML format. When I attempt to display the report in EXCEL, report is not displayed at all.

Can someone help me with this?

Thank you.

Using FORMAT EXL2K works fine for us.

Using FORMAT EXCEL, we get an EDA no/data message.
(Abend S0C4 RC4 module TABPR using release 5.1.4 under TSO)

Regards,
Mikel

Thank you Mikel. Unfortunately, we do not have EXL2K yet.

RB,

If you are using SQL Server tables and the source is a varchar, change the synonym assignments for the column(s) in question.

i.e. if the column is varchar(100) then change the synonym usage and actual values from TX50 and TX to A100 and A100 and give it a try.

I only use EXL2K and cannot say whether this will work but it's worth a try.
