Exporting CDS entities to Excel wrong data

I'm exporting my custom entity to excel.

I have several dropdown fields, but 2 of them are not exporting right.

Their data fields seens to be corrupted, and shows wrong data (mixed data), where item 1, shows as item 3, and item 2 shows as item 1 from the dropdowns (for example). And this only occurs in this 2 specific fields.

I don't know why this is happenning, because at the app and in the CDS the data are correct, but when export to excel, these fields shows wrong data.

Re: Exporting CDS entities to Excel wrong data

Hi AlexVOR,


I assume that field type of the dropdown fields should be Picklist.

So I create a custom entity with several Picklist field to test this issue.

However, I don’t get the issue you mentioned when I export the entity to Excel. All the data are correctly exported.




Please following the documentation and try again with it:
