In web UI flow unable to download/export excel file from vendor portal


I have built, web UI flow using selenium ide. following is broad description of my process.


1. Launch vendor portal in Chrome browser

2. Input User name and password and click Login

3. Click select, menu, sub menus, enter from-date , to-date, click show

4. Click, select all, in result pane window,

5. click Export button in Popup

6. Excel-file is automatically downloaded in local folder.


All these process steps, works smoothly, if done manually in Chrome browser.

Exact same process is recorded in Selenium IDE.

Almost everything happens as per manual, EXCEPT

when Export button is hit in UI flow, second browser tab gets opened, and export file is shown as PDF.

(i.e. expected behaviors is, after clicking export-button, excel file is downloaded in local 'downloads' folder on local machine.


Please Guide, what can be done.
