Crystal 11.5 - Exporting to Excel via report viewer component


When you export a report to Excel using the report view component, it add a lot of unwanted formatting such as extra lines, merged cells, etc. It basically renders the report unuseable within Excel for doing things such as sorting, moving columns, etc. Is there any other way to export to Excel without this additional formatting, while still maintaining the look of the report. We are aware of the data only export, but that strips the report down too much. Previous versions of Crystal Reports, seemed to do a better job of this.
