Normally text files do not include any formatting capability.  Also most text files don't account for fonts and font sizes.

Exporting to a text file can be expected to lose the formatting.  Spaces between columns may be replaced by a either a tab or some number of spaces.  A text field will usually only contain the text and not account for any white space included in the report.

If you need to export and maintain formatting, I suggest you epxort to a word processor file like MS Word or to a PDF format.

Another ooption would be to export to Excel which will maintain the formatting.

good luck

You can also try exporting to Rich Text(Exact) Format.  This works well for me and keeps all formatting in place.

exporting usually cost a lot of misalignment. the best way to do it is to remove all the lines and align the columns
properly with a view zoom scale to 300 to 400 %  and export to rich text. and use a font thats narrow so can cater for more columns and space.
