Exporting contacts to excel from Segment shows only header line

MummigerMummiger Posts: 5Member
Hi everybody,

I am facing an issue regarding the contact Export from the segment Card.

Situdation: I added some contacts to the segment with the Action add contacts. Afterwards I want to Export the contacts from the segment Card into an Excel file wit the action Export contacts. NAV asks me which fields of the query should be exported. After I selected the fields that I want to see in the excel file the standard Windows Pop up asks me if I want to save the Excel file or just open it. If I click on open Excel starts and I see the Header line of me Export with the column topics, but there is no data. When I save the file I got the same Problem.

I tried this with several NAV versions (2017 & 2018 builds) and I am not sure what can cause the error. Is there a setup that I need to do with the excel addin?

I hope someone can help me.

Thanks in advance!

    The export contact action on segment page tries to export it to txt file?

    you need to export it to csv

    Why should an excel(xlsx) export be used as csv export? This is a standard Query that offers me by default the export as excel. Even if I save the file as csv the exported file just has a header line and no records.

    Does this standard feature ( i believe it is ) and appear on segment page?

    yes it is standard feature. when I open the excel file, there is no data, but it says "failed to retrieve server config".
