Omit text objects from Excel export?

Post Author: mcatd

CA Forum: Exporting

The Details section of my report contains data fields as well as some text objects (serving as labels - it doesn't have a horizontal, spreadsheet-style layout). I want to export the report's data to Excel, but I don't want the text objects. Is there a way I can omit them from the export?

    A standard approach is to right click the details anbd select insert section below.

    Now place the fields you DO want exported in the details B section.

    Now create a boolean parameter such as "Export only?" and in the suppression for the details sections A and B code accordingly, as in:

    {?Export only}

    and in the Details B:

    not({?Export only})

    Now the fiedls required will be displayed/exported when you're exporting, otherwise it will display all of the fields.
