    I have alot of custom color formating in my reports. When I export to excel all of color formatting is gone. Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks for you help.

    Not all color formatting is preserved when doing an Excel export as native Excel formatting differs quite a bit from HTML/CSS.

    You can send the (simplified) report source code to the support so we can take a look at it.

    What code would you like me to send? For Example: I have a report with 10 columns and i have a rowstyle column that colors various other columns based on the data in that column.

    When i click the option to export or even print, the color coding isn't there.

    Do you want the report code? I am not using any export options or anything. Just CSS and queries.

    Just send the report code so we can see if there is something that can be done with the Excel.

    Colors in printing depend on browser settings. We'll have greatly improved PDF export in upcoming myDBR 3.2 release which will support all formatting.
