Unable to export "<" symbol in excel

Hi All,

I have used conditional formatting in obiee 12c report wherein when data will be less than <-100 then "<100%" will be shown as a column value. I have done this by going to column properties->conditional format -> Add condition and then set the below numeric format in data format tab.

Custom Numeric Format : @;"<(100%)"


Column 1   Column 2

ABC           <100%

So, when I am trying to export this data in excel then it is giving me below error, basically "<" symbol is giving me the error:

There was an error processing your download.

Please check with your administrator

Can anybody advise how can I export "<" symbol from obiee 12c report to excel asap.
