scheduling to destination issue with 4.2 SP3 (Unable to use custom specific name)

Hi Friends, We have recently upgraded 4.1 SP5 with 4.2 SP3. When we schedule webi/crystal , and then set some destination.. File attachment option is removed. When you select "Use specific name" and provide the name as "Testreport.dat", the attachment is getting delivered along with the extension by default as "Testreport.dat.txt". We have some downstream dependancies awaiting for the exact files.

Has anybody found any work around using BO? apart from renaming the files using some script. We would like to know if we can still generate the files from BO. attaching screen shot. Please help!!

Satya

    I opened an incident for this, and was advised that it will be fixed in an upcoming patch for SP04.
