Export files as Excel(.xlsx) format from Anaplan


Description of the enhancement required:
I want to be able to export Excel(.xlsx) format from the Export Dialogue Box in the model.


An example of the enhancement:
1) Open any module in a model, go to Data dropdown list, select Export.
2) In the Layout tab, user wants to be able to select Excel(.xlsx) as a File Type under Export Format.
3) User is unable to do so with the current model.

How would it help the business process:
When the user exports using Excel(.xls) File Type, it limits the rows/columns that can be extracted out of Anaplan.

  • Status changed to: In Review
  • We would also like to see support for the latest format for Excel during an Export operation.

  • There is now an option to export to .xlsx.


    Making some noise on this one - it's now 2021 and Microsoft are retiring ond formats - I get an error when trying to open an .xls format.


    Please can the default be updated to .xlsx.
