I'm trying to export some data with Korean characters, but when I click to export I get a txt file with the following trace:

Unrecoverable error in the server.
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/Users/notgary/Splunk/Sites/XX_splunk/lib/python2.6/site-packages/cherrypy/_cpwsgi.py", line 163, in next
    chunk = self.iter_response.next()
  File "<string>", line 189, in generate_from_stream
  File "/Users/notgary/Splunk/Sites/XX_splunk/etc/apps/excel_export/bin/xlwt/Worksheet.py", line 1003, in write
    self.row(r).write(c, label, style)
  File "/Users/notgary/Splunk/Sites/XX_splunk/etc/apps/excel_export/bin/xlwt/Row.py", line 231, in write
    StrCell(self.__idx, col, style_index, self.__parent_wb.add_str(label))
  File "/Users/notgary/Splunk/Sites/XX_splunk/etc/apps/excel_export/bin/xlwt/Row.py", line 150, in insert_cell
    raise Exception(msg)
Exception: Attempt to overwrite cell: sheetname=u'splunk_results' rowx=0 colx=0

Everything works fine when everything is English. I'm going to keep trying, but please let me know if you have any ideas about what might be going wrong. Thanks.

This was just a lame error on my part. In appserver/controllers/excel.py, this:

186         # write the header
187         for field in fieldNames:
188             result_sheet.write(0,i,field)
189         i = i + 1

should be this (notice the indent):

186         # write the header
187         for field in fieldNames:
188             result_sheet.write(0,i,field)
189             i = i + 1

The fixed version is available on Splunkbase right now (version 1.1.1). You can also just make the above change (add 4 spaces on line 189) and then restart Splunk to get the same result.

I made a few more tweaks in 1.2 which is available today.
