Export Report Scrambles Fields in Report Header

I have created a custom report using Report Writer. It consists of a Report Header containing field names (text fields) and a body containing various fields in a single line. The idea is to export this data out to a text or csv file for an outside user.

The problem is that the report prints correctly, but when exported out to a file, the text fields in the report header do not remain in the order that they appear in the report so the data is not labelled correctly as to field.

I thought that I had read about a fix for this issue some time ago, but cannot seem to find it anywhere in my office.

Does anyone out there have a solution?
