Export to Excel with no formatting

I have a sas program that exports data to an a tab in an excel workbook.  It is basically a data dump with no formatting.  The sas job is set to run daily when it replaces the data in the tab often the cells in the workbook will be randomnly filled in with colours.  It's almost like the sheet takes colours from other tabs in the workbook but I don't know why.  No formatting required.  Here's my export code.

PROC EXPORT DATA=adl

OUTFILE= "X:\Customer Service\2015_data.xlsx"

DBMS=EXCEL97 REPLACE;

SHEET = "data";

RUN;

Re: Export to Excel with no formatting

Your DBMS should be something like EXCEL, EXCELCS or XLSX but probably not EXCEL97
