You can only export one report and then you have to close the console and log back in to export the next one. Each time you try to export a report it spawns a new Excel process without ending the previous one.

Exporting a task fails with Runtime Error.


Download and apply Hotfix 72960 which is available on our website


Excel does not close out its process and starts a new one each time you try to export.

A Microsoft ADO connection string is obscured on Vista and newer operating systems so exporting tasks did not work on Windows 2008 machines.
