  • @AdrianLarson sad. I export all the time and it is like a splinter. Just annoying enough to try to fix. :) Commented Mar 18, 2016 at 16:34

    I posted it in the SF ideas section. So it might happen in 10 years. - success.salesforce.com/ideaView?id=08730000000E1urAAC Commented Mar 18, 2016 at 16:43
  • You could roll your own with the Analytics API if you don't care about xls at all. Cost benefit analysis is up to you! I bet you could whip it together in a day or two.
