Changing format of reports generated by the K1

Hi My Ninjas.

I have an issue with the excel reports being generated by the

K1. The default excel reports being generated are in the XLS format.

This pops up with warnings about format and compatibilities when

users try to open them. I have been told to change the format.

I would like the reports to be generated in the XLSX format.

But I don't know how to do this. There is only one excel option

to choose from in the report schedules.

Thanks for the help in advance.

Unfortunately,  at this time. The option to select XLSX is not available.

You may want to suggestion a product change  here.

ACTUALLY this is a known defect designated K1-17412

The file that is generated IS an XLSX document but KACE erroneously gives it an XLS extension, which leads to the 'compatibility' error from Excel. This would be ridiculously easy to fix, so I don't know why it's been an issue since at least 2018.
