Hello,

It will be alignment and size of the report cells.

Assuming your data is in Details.
Highlight first cell and make sure it is at top of section adjust to size you want.
Now highlight all cells and make sure Cell 1 is selected right click and select Size and position.
Align all other cells with top of cell 1 and then make height same as Cell1.
Make sure detail section now has no white space underneath cells, this should eliminate blank rows when exporting to excel.

In the details line (or whatever section where the displayed data is). Make sure the objects are at the top of the section (check Size and Position for the object) and line up all). Then do a Fit Section. That should eliminate any extra white space.

Is it mandatory that your report does not have any Groups in use?
With one only Detail section in play it seems that the export to Excel will go
cleanly.
Any tips on exporting when using Groups to group data and then performing an export to Excel?

Just a guess. When I was working with Business Objects report exports, most, especially complex reports such as you describe, were a mess to import into Excel.

So what I ended up doing was exporting the data from the query that was the source data for the report. THAT WORKED!!!

Any chance of exporting that data?
