Hi there, I had a question about the excel exporter module. I was trying it out in a test project and I followed the documentation here: https://docs.mendix.com/howto/integration/using-the-excel-exporter And I now have the situation where an excel is generated with worksheets that are properly named, the excel itself has the name I gave it but it's completely empty. It doesn't even contain the column headers itself. I checked whether I had data in my database. I have an association in my domain model between the document entity and another entity: This is what I tried at first, I've also tried setting document I create as the association like this: But that also resulted in empty rows. I tried making the retrieved data start at lower rows than 1 as well, but it stays completely empty... Anyone any hints as to something I've forgotten to do or should try?
And does your user has acces rights to the entity you want to export?
Okay so I figured out what I forgot, I didn't commit the reference since I assumed it would be enough to set it in the microflow as I assumed it then would be in the memory at time of report generation.
I'll add it as a feedback item for the documentation, thanks Maarten!
PS: to anyone else getting empty excels after it worked with one entity. If a reference entity is empty it empties the whole sheet and you might have to use a different type of join for the database retrieve under associations as it automatically starts with Inner join:
