Formatting in export to excel using binary excel file
On exporting the page list to excel, the formats (DATE and integer) are exporting with different formats (DATETIME and decimal) for date and currency fields.
Steps to Reproduce
1. Create an activity with MSOGenerateExcelFile step with an excel template.
2. After downloading the excel sheet, check the date/interger values.
The activity, MSOGenerateExcelFile, does not support the functionality that you are attempting to use. The issue is that the values are stored as text on the clipboard, which causes excel to override any formatting specified in the template.
Use viewexceldata activity (instead of MSOGenerateExcelFile) with HTML stream to get the desired formatting styles in downloaded excel sheet.
