Problem in excel download in WDJ

Hi All,

I have an issue with excel download in Webdynpro for Java Application.

Im using Link To URL UI element for the export to excel.

First Case:When I execute a reort and click on Export to Excel, in the same session, the correct data is filled in excel file.(i.e same as the one on screen).

Second Case:Whereas if i execute a report and go to another IE window, and come back to the report screen after 2-3 minutes, and then click on export to excel link, the downloaded data is incorrect, i.e different from the one on screen.

This is a strange issue, as I am not able to correct anything in code too, as in the first case the excel works fine.

Can somebody suggest what could be the issue?

    What kind of report is that? e.g. BI report.

    and how frequently this issue occure?

    as you said you used a link to URL

    means some url is assigned to its context when report is generated.

    what i understand is on export to excel you are not performing any operation on data displayed in WD report screen.

    instead that excel is fetched from an web address(from other location).

    It may possible in 2 3 mins data from that location may change.

      It depends upon the type of communication between used in application.

      do your application have SSO between portal and backend? if you are using FMs

      do your application have statless/statefull session beans? if you are using EJBs

      at also depends upon the report generation logic.

      You can run some test scenarios and check wheather url changes everytime. or it is just the same.
