Issue in exporting data in Excel format


Unfortunately, this is not a bug. Rather, it is the result of a security fix that had to be implemented due to an 
Excel security vulnerability called "CSV formula injection". Please search the web for "CSV formula injection" 
for further details on this vulnerability. 

A workaround is documented on file Bug27012520 _Workaround.doc, basically a Search and Replace 
on the exported file. 

Also, other customers have asked if this new behavior is permanent, yes, this behavior will be permanent at least 
until either Microsoft fixes the vulnerability on Excel or Oracle Developers find a less disruptive solution. 


Howdy, Stranger!
