When I try to export data from an AGOL feature layer into an xlsx i receive the following error.

"Excel cannot open the file, file format or extension is not valid"

When selecting to export you don't get an option to select the extension so I don't understand why this should be an issue.

Can anyone suggest a reason why this is happening or a work around?

For information : The data been exported is a point feature with 3 text attribute fields.

  • Can you share the layer item with export enabled? – Russ Roberts Feb 26 '19 at 15:39
  • creates a .xlsx that cannot open (The error mention above is what is generated) – Corky Feb 27 '19 at 8:14
