Excel created with Minimal style cannot be opened

I am using the tagsets.excelXP with the style set to minimal to output
to an excel file. The code works for over a year without any problem
until this month.

If I use a different style, such as Statistical, excel opens the file
with no problems. Here is my ods settup.

FILENAME F1 "c:\temp\haha.xls" ;

ods tagsets.excelxp file=f1 style=minimal
options(
embedded_titles='no'
embedded_footnotes='no'
frozen_headers='yes'
frozen_rowheader ='1'
Autofit_height='yes'
)
RS = NONE ;

PROC PRINT DATA=sashelp.class;
run;
ods tagsets.excelxp close;

Hi,
I would recommend that you check the version of TAGSETS.EXCELXP that you are using. There used to be an issue with the MINIMAL style in earlier versions of SAS and ODS but I have not seen this problem since I've been running SAS 9.2-- if you look in the SAS log the version info should be there.

If you are running SAS9.2 and having this issue, I would recommend working with Tech Support.
