Issue exporting Old dates data to Excel


We have a Date columns where we have dates as 1/1/0001. When the WebI Report is exported to excel the values for 1/1/0001 is showing up as ######## instead of 1/1/0001.

The users are fine if the excel shows up as 1/1/0001 instead of #########.

Has any one came across this issue and has any work around, so while exporting to excel it displays the date as in WebI.

    =If([DateObject]= ToDate("1/1/0001";"M/d/yyyy")) Then "1/1/0001" ELSE [DateObject]
