Problem downloading to CSV

Hi,

We have a report that is sent (Emailed)to the customer in Excel format.

The main problem with it is that there is a field in that report which is in character (CHAR 20) format.

If it has a value like this 501321E-00, when it gets downloaded to Excel it converts to 5.01E+05.

What do I have to convert that field(column) to text format.

Please help me to resolve this issue.Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Venkat

    Hi,

    Just extend the column length of excel by double clicking top right side of that column.
