Error when opening exported CSV file in EXCEL

I have a report which I would like to import into Excel. I have other reports in my application that imports to excel without any problems.

When I import the report into Excel I get the following result:

<div id="report_1082800291137941_catch"><pre>report error:
ORA-01722: invalid number</pre>

If I set the Use Query-Specific Column Names and Validate Query instead of Use Generic Column Names (parse query at runtime only) I get the following error when trying to apply the changes:

ORA-20001: Error getting query headings: ORA-06502: PL/SQL: numeric or value error
Error saving column settings.

Even throug I haven't made any changes to the query since I created it.

All the columns in my UNION query is of the same type.

Can anyone advice me?

    I think you are mixing the words "export" and "import" and it is a bit hard to follow. Are you using the standard CSV export functionality of apex? Any chances to show your query? What if you run your query in SQL Workshop?
