Quickbooks Enterprise - Custom Transaction Detail Report - Create new Excel creates Duplicate records

I am using Quickbooks Enterprise 16,  I am using the Custom Transaction Detail Report.  
I need to export this to Excel.  
When I click on Excel to Create New Worksheet, I notice some of the records replicate.  This also appears in the new Excel file.  
I have had this problem years ago, but don't recall how I fixed it.  
I am exporting to Excel 2013.  
I have tried exporting to CVS.  Same problem.
How do I overcome this problem?
Thank you.

First, Excel 2013 works fine with QuickBooks 2016 - we use this at clients. I myself use Office 2016 and that works fine.

That said, before exporting, scroll down the report to where you saw duplicates. Are the duplicates in the report?  Do the duplicate records have data in them (i.e., non-zero)?

John,
No, the duplicates records have the identical Trans #, Date entered, amounts, etc.
Maybe I need to rebuild my QB database.

Copy your datafile to a local machine. Then open QuickBooks and navigate to the local file.

In QuickBooks, File, Utilities, Rebuild.

Be certain to do this locally and not over a network.

John,

I should add that after the duplicate records appear, when I hit Refresh,
These duplicate records go away!

That does sound like a database issue. I use QuickBooks at lot for multiple clients and do not see this,

Rebuild is a busy, busy activity and I do that locally. But it absolutely looks like a DB issue. So you do need to fix this.

John,

Yes.  However, we only have 2 users and it has to be single user mode, so I think I'm okay.
Yes, I will call QB Tech Support tomorrow.  I thought they were 24/7 for Enterprise, but I think this  changed.  
Thank you for your insights.

I'm on that annual lease program that includes maintenance.  It was 24/7, but now it's been reduced.

Thank you.

John,
I did come across a solution.  
I was on the phone with QuickBooks technical support. They did the usual to check the database:
1.  Resort the lists
2.  Run rebuild
3.  Make a portable file
4. Run complete verification
5. Check results of qbwin.log
Our Quickbooks Enterprise database is fine.  
They had no solution at this time.

However, I did try eliminating some fields.  I did discover that excluding the "Ship to State" solved my problem.  There may be other such fields.
