Steps to Reproduce

  1. In a report definition, configure Export to Excel for the Actions menu in the Data Access tab.
  2. Export data which has a column of property type Text.
  3. For this column, populate one row with a number and the second row with text (for example, xyz).

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules.
When the data type of the property is of text, the Export to Excel converted the text to number type by parsing it.
