I tried the same as you have suggested above to create excel, My activity is getting executed without error and browse page is also having proper  data. But I am not getting excel to download after loading data in it.

Please help me if you can.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Tushar, When you say that your excel is not getting downloaded with data but the browse page has proper data I am not clear. So when you run the activity you see the activity popup a browser with download filename in it and when you click on the file you are seeing the content right? If so, is the content not appearing correctly at runtime using a button click?

Could you make sure you have your binary file configured correctly and let us know the browser you are using.

Hi , Can you please help me on this?

I am not able to download the file even if when I am using "open url window " action and using that activity, getting run-time error

Hi, I got the run-time exception as well and noticed that the log error showing "lack access required to execute <activity>". So I updated my activity to allow access under "Security" tab and that fixed the issue for me.

Let us know if that helps!
