Hello!

I am trying to schedule an existing report to run and export results as an excel file to a shared drive via the Output (Folder Device) option. However, I am unable to figure out how to set the output's file type, if there is the option. We do have the Excel and PDF Converter license. Am I missing something obvious/has anyone been able to do this successfully? Thanks!

the file type is normally automatically added to the file generated (as it depends on the format)...
just make a try.

Thanks for the reply! The file being generated is an html. I need an excel version ideally. Is there a way to specifically set the file extension that the report is generated and saved off into the folder with, is my question. Thanks!

You can do that using the Pre-Generation Script of your report output:
Here is a sample to rename your result file to a .txt

Code:
@using System.IO
@{
    ReportOutput output = Model;
    
    var resultPath = output.Report.ResultFilePath;
    var newResultPath = Path.Combine(Path.GetDirectoryName(resultPath),Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(resultPath) + ".txt");
    if (File.Exists(newResultPath)) {
        File.Delete(newResultPath);
    }
    File.Move(resultPath, newResultPath);
    output.Report.ResultFilePath = newResultPath;
}    


You can do that for a CSV (Excel), for native Excel file (xlsx), you will need the PDF and Excel Converter (evaluation can be downloaded at https://ariacom.com)
