How to avoid opening file automatically after export to spreadsheet?

Hi,

When we use SAP ALV list format, for example in MB51, we can export the list to spreadsheet via List -> Export -> Spreadsheet.

After we choose Excel (in MHTML Format), then the list will be export to excel file and the file will be opened by EXCEL automatically.

Some of our users don't want to open it automatically, especially when they need to export several reports, then a lot of EXCEL files will be opened.

Is there any place to configure whether the exported file is opened immediately or not?

Thanks

Wesley

    If you choose export to local file, then select spreadsheet, enter the filename and then click Generate, an excel file is created in the SapWorkDir folder, but not opened automaticaly .
