How do you change the defaulted/saved download format from SAP (to) Excel

Dear Gurus,

This is an URGENT query - I am trying to download report FBL3N from SAP > Excel.

I have selected the (wrong format in error) - “Excel (In MHTML format), and clicked on the “always use selected format”.

I want CHANGE this to “Excel (In existing XXL Format), but the problem is I believe it has defaulted in. Is there any way I can REMOVE the “Always use selected format”, thereby give me back the download options, where I can re-select the correct format to download the report.

Thanks

RICK

    Program SALV_BS_ADMIN_MAINTAIN to maintain the entries.

    See OSS 1080608 for more details

    Major change by SAP and no easier accessible documentation. Yikes, sometimes it does not pay to be on the lastest support packs.

    • I think applying the notes individually is possible but my recent experience has been that basis SP are a better way to go. It limits your application risk since you only need to apply the Basis and ABA stack SPs.

      My bad experience was the note dependencies. I tried to implement a single note which begat a dozen other dependent notes which in turn had other dependencies. Too much to implement individually. I turned to a basis SP instead. We prefer to implement the Support Stack but we have found after 3 basis SPs applications that they are relatively painless.

      Formats/layouts are mostly user specific.

      Try using another user ID and excute the same, you should be able to set another default specifically for this user.

      Check/delete SU3 if any user parameter is holding the value.

    Ask your admin or basis guy to help you out.
