    Excel export form server (destroys the formatting)

    Lea Tehovnik



      I saw this topic before but had not found any particular answer.  Is there any way to export the data as an excel file from tableau server, without destroying the format? Right now I get the columns and the column names all mixed together.


      I saw some answers with the cmd workaround  (Exporting a CSV of Underlying Data Using Tabcmd Export or Get | Tableau Software ), but the problem is that the end user won’t know how to do it.


      My data is very large so this (The Greatest Tableau Tip EVER: Exporting CSV made simple! ) option with adding an extra sheet would make the report really slow.


      I saw this idea (https://community.tableau.com/ideas/1398) and am wondering if there is any improvement going on…


      Thank you for your answers!
