Hi All,

Ive design a report in Crystal 9 and I export it out using the export wizard selecting MS Excel 97-2000 (data only). When I view the report in excel, it has everything I need (most importantly, the headers). When I automated the report to run each morning via my BusinessObjects 11.5, the header info is missed out, how do I get the header to appear on the automated report?

Not sure what you mean by "automate"...?

Do you mean "schedule" the report to run automatically and export to excel automatically?

How did you schedule it?

WHen I have exported reports one of the options is to include the headers.  Perhaps that is turned off in the BO export.

I believe you have to set the format of the HEADER itself to allow it to export...check the formatting...
