Export to Excel differences


Right now, when I export a report to Excel (List -> Export -> Spreadsheet), the report will come out in Excel looking exactly as it did in SAP.

I have a user who is trying to run the same report, same transaction, same everything. However, when their report comes out in Excel, it looks extremely different, with columns in different places and other miscellaneous changes. This is strange because their process to export the report to Excel is the same as mine. They are doing everything as I am, yet they recieve a different result.

The only difference between our 2 users is our security roles. I have have nearly all SAP roles while this user does not have very many (our company uses custom roles).

What authorization object (or generic user role) am I looking for that would allow a report to be exported to Excel correctly? What do you think this user could be missing that my user currently has?
