Hi there,
I'm facing an issue while working with PDI 9.1. I'm trying to generate Excel Files with Excel Writer step with XLSX template. The transformation works ok and the file is correctly created, but when you open in Excel (no matter with version) it shows a sort of compatibility error and asks to recover the document.
Does anyone know how to solve this?
Thank you

Can you share a screenshot of the options you have selected on the Excel Writer Step; if you are able to share a sample transformation that produces this behavior I can give this a test?
