Issue with excel email attachment after upgrade


Hi ,

We have recently upgraded from ECC 5.0 non-unicode to ECC 6.0 unicode version.

An existing program converts the data in an internal table into HTML code and then sends this as an email attachment(XLS format) using the FM SO_NEW_DOCUMENT_ATT_SEND_API1.

Now if the mail attachment is sent from the non-unicode system , excel converts the HTML code and shows the data perfectly but when i open the mail attachment from the unicode system, the HTML code sits in a cell of the excel and therefore data is not visible.If i wish to see the data, i will have to cut the data from the cell and paste it .

I anticipate that this is because of some issue with the unicode.

Your inputs towards the issue resolution are highly appreciated.
