Specification exported to Excel contains bare HTML style tags



PRPC supports specifications formatting. Specifications look fine in PRPC and Application Document. However, specifications exported to the Excel is hard to read due to the html style tags.

Error Messages

Specifications exported to the Excel is hard to read due to the html style tags.

Steps to Reproduce

1 Create and edit specification.
2 Export specifications to Excel.
3 Check file exported.

Root Cause

This is an expected behaviour.


As per design, we keep the HTML style tags for description as is in the exported Excel. The reason is if user edits the same excel and imports back into system, we want to retain the same styles entered earlier. If we remove html tags and give plain text in the exported Excel, after importing the same Excel after edit, styles do not take effect.
