Missing columns in XLSX attachments and downloads

Hello there,
I recently updated our self hosted metabase to version 0.41.0 and I really like the update to the excel files being converted nicely.

However, we have a few queries that now give us an empty XLSX file when we download them or only show 2 out of 9 columns for example.

They use a raw SQL query as their data/table and add a few filters on top. When I download the raw sql query, all columns are shown correctly.

I am really sorry that I can't describe it better but maybe I am not the only one experiencing this. Please let me know if I can add any important information :slight_smile:

Hi @haas_zoeller

Post "Diagnostic Info" from Admin > Troubleshooting.

Can you include the output of /api/card/123 , where 123 is your question ID, of one of your problematic questions? This should be on the questions, where you aggregate and filter, not the nested raw SQL question.

I have seen a couple of reports of this, but I have not been able to reproduce, so I don't know what the problem could be.

Hello @flamber

I am not sure if I understood correctly what you need from me with the api.
My question has the following link for example:
when I go to http://metabase:3000/api/726-auslaufende-w-r-vertrage or http://metabase:3000/api/726

I get the following message:
"API-Endpunkt existiert nicht."

The request should be http://metabase:3000/api/card/726 (notice card)
You should upgrade your Java:
And migrate away from H2 if you're using Metabase in production:

hi @flamber
I will make sure to update our java version soon.

can I send you the data from http://metabase:3000/api/card/726 through a private message or mail ? I fear that theres personal information embedded that I wouldn't want to be visible here :smile:
