Warning message while exporting a BI report in excel format from SAP Portal


Hi Team,

We have recently upgraded the Micrsoft office to 2010 and then when we try to export any SAP BI report into excel format there is a popup with open save options (excel type is still old version i.e is 97 - 2003 version) and immediatelty a warning message saying "The file you are trying to open '' , is in a different format than specified by the file extension. Verify that the file is not corrupted and is from a trusted source before opening the file. Do you want to open the file now".

If let me know if there is any configuration to be done from Basis front specifying the correct excel format to be chosen while opening the file or any compatability issue with the version 2010 with SAP portal.
