Having trouble exporting queries from WebI browser version. I know what is causing the problem but I do not understand why this is a problem.

Steps to recreate:

  1. Use an external link to access the WebI tool
  2. Create simple query and run it
  3. Save the query with a name that includes the plus(+) sign in it
  4. Try to export the query as any type of file

The export function just hangs for a long time returning no error.

This is caused by the (+) sign in the file name. Why would the WebI SAP tool allow you to use a character in a file name that you cannot pass though an export? Another interesting fact is that if you do this on an internal link is has no problem exporting (+) sign file names, it is only when you do it on an external link.
