"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Cognos doesn't create true binary excel flles (can't, actually, because that file format is owned by Microsoft).  Cognos Excel files are essentially HTML files with excel specific tags.  As such, they can really only be view by Excel, or applicaitons that recognize the alternate HTML-based file format

Because it's "Excel MOBILE" and not "Excel". It doesn't understand the HTML codes.
