SSRS 2008 Export to Excel using subreports loses data in Excel Filter

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am using SSRS 2008 and I have a report with 2 subreports.  The export to Excel works great, but when I view the data in excel, I add a filter to the top header row and when I try to filter the data by selecting the drop-down on a column, no data is shown in the filter.  If I run either of the reports (that are sub-reports) directly (without them being a sub-report), the filter works just fine when I export to Excel.
