Particularities on exporting Excel files

The purpose of the trueChart Export is to export editable data. So instead of the visual representation the data behind the visual is exported. This behaviour results in that you can not export comments from a comment grid. The result of the export contains only the data source. An exception to this is exporting a table. In this case the export will try to take most of the format. This means that the column order and the hidden columns are taken into account. Inline comments will also taken in the exported file.
