Grouping Problem when export from Reporting Services to Excel

I have an report designed in Reportbuilder 2.0.  I am query data from SQL and retuening grouped results with averages for each group level.  The problem is it all looks good when run in report builder or run on the report server from the web browser, but on export to excel, the grouping does not line up the same as in the report builder.  Levels that should be hidden until expanded are showing on initial opening of tghe file.  Any ideas?

How are you doing?

See this link (under heading - Interactivity -> Show and Hide):

Are you using more than 7 levels or have you violated any of the rules listed? If so, you need to think of another way around this (from your RB 2.0) that works with Excel.

Hope this helps,

We ended up finding our own solution by inserting a new detail row above the group which corrected the problem.  the link provided however, was most helpful as we expand the report's capabilities.  Thank you.
