Disabling the default functionality for exporting reports to Excel

When you export report results to Excel, the export process generates .xlsx files and relies on Excel to do more of the formatting. If you customized reports in Excel based on the way the export process used to work, you can disable the default functionality and revert to the former export process.

Note: If you disable the default functionality, exporting report results to Excel requires more processing power and memory, and generates a much larger Excel file.
