I am working on a SSRS report using Wingding font to display the checkboxes. Everything works fine except MS Excel export. When I export it to Excel, it appears to be working properly. If I try to open the Excel file, a warning window always pops up stating "We found a problem with some content in "test.xlsx". Do you want us to try to recover as much as we can? If you trust the source of this workbook. Click Yes. " If I click yes, it actually export the content correctly. What does the warning mean? How can I solve this?
By the way, if I removed the Wingding column, everything works fine. So I am sure it is the Winding column that caused the issue.
Please see the video and the exported file at :
