Export Bex Chart to Excel

Hi All,

In my WAD template, I have created two buttons to enable me to toggle between displaying a 'table' or 'chart'. I also have a button to Export to Excel. Exporting to Excel works fine when the table is visible, however when I toggle to display the chart and then click on export to excel, the chart is not being exported, the excel file is blank.

The export button has these commands:

Command = EXPORT

Export format = XLS

Web Item = Default

Show Export Dialogue = On

Are you able to advise as to which settings are required to enable exporting to excel when a chart is being displayed?

I tried changing the Web Item to have two parameters, ANALYSIS and CHART_ITEM_1, however this did not appear to work for me.

Kind regards,
