Issue/Introduction

All of the masked Excel files got with FDM (4.10.9) are broken: 

 

  1. If you try to open them, you get something like (original in French): "Not possible to open the file "XXX.XLSX" because either its format or extension is not valid. Verify the file is not broken and its extension matches the file format.
  2. Within the OpenXML file, the "[Content_Types].xml" files are empty, for example.

Environment

Release : 4.10

Component : Fast Data Masker

Resolution

This has been resolved in FastDataMasker-4.10.14.0. If you are experiencing issues masking Excel files, please upgrade your FDM release to 4.10.14.0 or greater.
