Export to PDF gets an error saying it cannot open the file

Description

Please wait...
Export to PDF we get an error saying it cannot open the file

Cause

Product defect/enhancement

Hyperlinks are created when using Export To option on a column that has multiple values and adobe does not like how they are generated.

Resolution

This is somewhere between a product defect and enhancement as it is sort of expected behaviour on how sharepoint treats them but the desired result is were if feels like a defect.

There is a workaround to suggest to the customer and that is to turn on the field option "Do Not Render as Hyperlink". That way the export won't include the hyperlinks.
