Export to Excel from ALV using Excel 2016 does not open the worksheet

Some of our users are now using Excel 2016 (32-bit) with GUI 7.40.

Whey they export to an Excel spreadsheet, the file is transferred correctly and Excel opens automatically. However, the newly downloaded file is not opened. The user must browse to the folder from within Excel and open the file.

Has anyone seen this behavior?

    First off :

    • The effects only occur when using Excel 2016?
    • Are there Users that use a Different OS (Windows 7 VS 8 VS 10 VS ...?) that do not have the issues?
    • The issue does not occur in other Gui-versions (as an example: no issue when using SAP Gui 7.3x in combination with Office 2016)?


    Those suble differences could be of importance ...

    Please check SAP-KBA 2445376 on :

    • The correct SP-level of SAP Gui version to enable a good collaboration with Excel 2016 ;
    • It references a set of SAP-KBA's that are relevant to Office Integration, so please take all this detail into account ...


    Please revert back if you need more help OR want to explain what the solution is ...


    Kind regards

    Nic T.
