This happens only in instances where extracting the data takes a few minutes.

This is a pure OUTPUT TO EXCEP report.


The user makes criteria selection on the html page. User then clicks the blue arrow. There is no indication anything is running until the Excel report open after a few minutes.

Inevitably they start clicking the blue arrow multiple times.

This is what I've done for Excel reports.

1. My task outputs all Excel reports to a hidden iFrame.
2. I display a message saying "Creating Excel Export, Please Wait".
3. I created JS to do a "Wait" (Depending how long it takes) to remove that message. I was not able to find a way for WF to notify the browser when the Excel report was complete.
