Excel Default Font Issue
« on: 25 Apr 2018 05:41:24 am »
Hi All,
Iam Currently migrating my Project from Cognos 10 to Cognos 11.

Facing issue with Excel Font after Export.
In Cognos 10, if the Font set is Arial, in Cognos 11 after migration, HTML output gives Arial where as in Excel output, its always  coming with Font 'Andhale WT'. same case for other font types as well.
This seems to be a defect in 11.0.6 as per few sites, not sure if there a solution in place.

Please suggest

Thanks
TDK

Hi,

use C11.0.10 instead. Besides, the default font can be set in the Cognos configuration in the Global settings. Have you compared your C10 to your C11 setting?

Thanks a lot Reinhard for your quick reply. I will check your suggestion for the default Font with my Admin team.
we only have 11.0.6 & 11.0.8 available as of now in our end.
in 11.0.10, is the issue is fixed?

Besides the default font, even if I manually set the Font type to Arial or Tahoma, its still not reflecting the font type when exported to Excel in Cognos 11

My Question is
1. In versions 11.0.6 & 11.0.8 [Versions previous to 11.0.10], is there a way I can update the font type in Excel? or solution available or provided by IBM? or still its an open issue

Thanks
TDK
