Edit in Excel button not appearing in Chrome for decision tables



The edit in Excel button is not appearing for decision tables when opened in Chrome or Firefox browsers. However, in Internet Explorer (IE) it opens.

Error Messages

Not applicable

Steps to Reproduce

Open a decision table in Chrome or Fire Fox browsers.

Root Cause

The ‘Edit in Excel' is implemented using an ActiveX control and ActiveX traditionally is IE-specific (especially the way we embed it in HTML using the <object> tag with the classid attribute which is understood by only IE)


The behaviour is expected. The ActiveX controls in PRPC are only supported in IE.
