"Edit in Excel" for decision tables does not appear in Chrome



The "Edit in Excel" button does not appear on data table rule forms when using Firefox or Chrome.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

View decision table rule in Chrome or Firefox.

Root Cause

The "Edit in Excel" feature in Pega 7.1.7 (and earlier versions) is dependant on ActiveX controls and thus requires the use of Internet Explorer.


This is the expected behavior (the button is purposefully not displayed in Chrome or Firefox).  This is not a requirement in Pega 7.1.8 and later versions.
