I have a report which has one drill down.  Is there a way to remove the drill down affect (the + sign toggle) when it is being exported to excel?  I basically only want the unformatted report to be exported to Excel.

Thanks!!

You can use the renderformat global to determine if the report is rendered for Excel. See:

But I'm afraid the toggling isn't something you can swith on and off based on an expression. You might need a copy of your tablix without toggling. Then you can show the right tablix based on the rendering.
Not a simple solution unfortunately.
But I think it is possible to control the InitialToggleState. This way the report is collapsed in the browser but expanded in Excel.

You might find some hints in this article:
