Export to portlet issue in Microsoft Excel 2007

We are recieving a warning messages whenever we export a portlet/save searches to Microsoft Excel 2007.

As per system requirement.

PPM7.1 supports Microsoft Excel 2007 (support starting with SP5).

See the attachment for the error we recieved.

Please let me know if there's a way to remove this warning message.

Thanks.

Re: Export to portlet issue in Microsoft Excel 2007

Hi,
there is probably an incorrect content type declaration in the excel file PPM tries to generate. We still have the same type of message in 7.5. When trying to save the excel file it proposes to save it as HTML even. The warning message is supposed to be a security feature of Office. To correct this HP will need to work on the excel export. I did not yet open an SR though.
