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.
