I have a number of Crystal Reports that the export settings save for but I have one which it doesn't.   It remembers that I want to export as excel but it forgets that I want it :
1. based on the details section
2. export the page header and footer
3. simplify the page headers

Thoughts?

Is it supposed to save the options.

I recall it is supposed to remember the last format you exported to but I didn't think it went further than that.

I tried on a report of mine that I usually export to PDF and exported to Excel and changed the default settings in the advanced.  When I exported again, it chose Excel as the default but the default settings in advanced were still set.  My changes were not saved.

The solution is as I said.  Crystal doesn't save that information so you can't do what you want.
