Hi Experts,

I'm currently having a trouble with downloading my internal table to .xls file.

I was able to download an .XLS file using FM SAP_CONVERT_TO_XLS_FORMAT when using MS Excel 2010 but when I've used MS Excel 2013 im having a message "Filename.XLS:file format is not valid" when I open the file.

I've tried to use GUI_DOWNLOAD but the file being downloaded is in CSV form not xls format.

Does anybody have an idea?

You should revert to using "ABAP2XLSX" (opensource project), or some other clever solutions (such as the sample in the ABAPblog : link).
