Exporting to Excel: Enhancements

In the previous versions, any formatting would have to be completed manually. With this new feature, column headers are now bold with shading so that they stand out from the rest of the information. The first row (Row 1) is now frozen by default so that the headers are still in view as your scroll throughout the document. All of your values (numeric fields) are automatically totaled using the Excel Sum Formulator located in the last row underneath your collected data.
