KBA-01009: Why does my report output want to download when I try to run it?


When running a deployed report whose name includes the word attachment, I get a File Download message saying ‘Some files can be harmful…‘, and I can choose to save or open the file, but it won‘t display the report.  How can I fix this?


Remove the word Attachment from the report name.
