Exporting Shared Column Reports - Excel

Avatar

Level 8

We love to use shared columns in our reports but need to be able to take the same format and export it into Excel. Has anyone been able to successfully export a report with shared columns into Excel or found any workarounds? Thank you in advance.

I've found the same experience, unfortunately. I think even if you are sharing columns in WF, they are still technically separate fields so therefore export as separate columns. Looks like there's an idea for this that I just upvoted, it could use some votes!

this may be too fiddly but have you considered saving as a PDF and then converting the PDF to an excel? Otherwise, I would ping Doug Den Hoed.

Thank you for the suggestion. I tried it out and could not get it to work as I would have hoped for unfortunately.
