Problems with excel file generated by dynamics

Posted on by 18
Hi

Every time we open a file created from our dynamics solution, we get an error explaining that excel had to repair the file. 
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<recoveryLog xmlns="http://schemas.openxmlformats.org/spreadsheetml/2006/main"><logFileName>error485680_01.xml</logFileName><summary>Der
blev fundet fejl i filen '(local computer directory)/Portal View Aktive Medlemmer.xlsx'</summary><additionalInfo><info>Excel har fuldført validering og reparation af filniveau. Nogle dele af denne projektmappe er måske repareret eller slettet.</info></additionalInfo><repairedRecords><repairedRecord>Reparerede poster: Regnearksegenskaber fra /xl/workbook.xml-del (Projektmappe)</repairedRecord></repairedRecords></recoveryLog>
 
This error happens whenever we download an excel file from powerapps portals on an entitylist. The file downloads fine, but when we open it in excel it shows a warning that the workbook in the excel file needs to be repaired. When the file gets repaired the data is correct, but we dont know why excel thinks the file need repaired.
 
Anyone familiar with this problem and possible solutions?
 
I have without luck tried to search for solutions or explainations to this problem.
 
It is in a Dynamics Sales environment.

    We found the problem. It seems the system is inserting some standard names/strings frem CRM, and some of these are not compliant with Excel rules for worksheets:

    @PerezAguiar Thanks for the suggestion, we tried it out but still get the same error, sadly.

    Hey.
     
    Would you happen to have other languages deployed? If possible, try to switch the language to English and then export to excel. This might discard issues with the character conversion.
