Numeric props exported to Excel from grid repeat in text format
User is exporting data from a repeat grid into Excel using an 'Export' button that calls an activity 'FinancialSummaryExport' which calls the OOTB activity 'MSOGenerateExcelFile' to export the data into Excel. The issue is that when the export happens, all the numeric fields (Integer, decimal etc) are getting coverted to text automatically.
Steps to Reproduce
Export data into Excel which contain numerical values.
The activity MSOGenerateExcelFile does not support the functionality that the developer is attempting to achieve. The issue is that the values are stored as text on the clipboard, which causes Excel to override any formatting specified in the template.
The functionality is not supported by this activity. It is working as designed.
