The Save-as Excel functionality only works with the 32-bit version of Microsoft Excel. You must also have installed from the Microsoft Download center the following file: Microsoft Access 2013 Runtime.exe.

Generated file path — Allows you to enter the path to the folder where you save specifications in Excel format.  If you leave this box blank, the software saves the Excel files in the default folder, which is the SPI_SaveAsExcel folder under the user's base folder.

To locate the user's base folder, click the Windows Start > Run > %userprofile%.

Global path — Displays the global path set by the System Administrator.

To enable a generated file path other than the default path, the System Administrator must ensure that in the Domain Definition Window (System Administration) the Allow to overwrite the global path check box is selected. For further details see, Domain Definition Window (System Administration).

Saving method — These options affect both batch mode and individual mode of saving specifications in Excel format.
