Scheduled report sending Excel opens with warning

When the schedule runs it attaches the report as an Microsoft Excel document and emails it to the designated person fine, however the issue is with accessing the attachment. When you attempt to open the attached file in excel you get the warning "The file format and extension of "file name" don't match. The file could be corrupted or unsafe." clicking "yes" allows you to open the file, but we are sending this file to people

Howdy, Stranger!
