Error description

  • I have edited my temp directory through the Modeler Admin
    Console (or directly by editing options.cfg in the <modeler
    install>/config folder) to point to my temp directory:
    temp_directory, "C:/temp"
    
    When I create an Excel file then append to it, then try to open
    the generated Excel file, I get an error:
    Excel found unreadable content in <filename> Do you want to
    recover the contents of this workbook?
    and if I click 'yes':
    Excel cannot open the file because the file format or file
    extension is not valid
    
    This happens on Modeler Client as well.
    

Local fix

  • add a trailing slash to the temp_directory argument and restart
    the server, or unpack the .xlsx file into a folder and pack all
    files under this folder with a zip tool like 7zip.
