I am working with Power Builder and I have an issue. I must extract a datawindow to excel. But it must have the same look and feel as in the print layout.  The difficulty is that, it has group and the header and the footer of the group have multiple lines. Further more there are hidden columns that would be nice, not to be extracted at excel.
