Hi,

I read some topics on the "The file you are trying to open is of different format..." and I tried to make a filename-generator-impl that would produce .xlsx files but that didn't help either. Is there any way to control the response content-type headers?

Nicklas,

The content type is set in the plugin.xml for the emitter and the
extension used is set in the viewer.properties for the deployed viewer:


# [EXTENSION SETTING]
viewer.extension.html=html
viewer.extension.pdf=pdf
viewer.extension.postscript=ps
viewer.extension.doc=doc
viewer.extension.xls=xls
viewer.extension.ppt=ppt
viewer.extension.ods=ods
viewer.extension.odt=odt
viewer.extension.odp=odp

You could change both but I do not think it will work because the xls
emitter does not generate xlsx files.

It doesn't? Strange, wonder why Excel is complaining then if the xls produced is an xls?

Thanks, I'll see what the xml tuning produces...

Nicklas,

It is producing a 2003 version of the xml format for excel.

Have a look at this bug:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=267988

You could also look at the tribix emitters or this entry
