    Yes. It can also export hidden columns. And you can exclude columns from the export.

    Hi @mpoirier101 ,

    No, sorry, it doesn't, I think @rf1234 must've misread that one. See this thread here.

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Hmmm depends on what we mean by child rows ... I have child rows whenever the responsive extension puts columns into a child row to make things fit like in here:

    All of the columns in the child row show up in my Excel export without any problem. So what am I missing here?

    Interesting. I didn't know Responsive would do that.
    Certainly the "usual" master/detail scenario doesn't export the detail (https://datatables.net/examples/api/row_details.html).

    Thanks, tangerine. I wasn't aware of that. I let the Responsive extension take care of child rows and don't create them manually. If you order your colums by significance / importance this works fine. Even if your application isn't meant to be "really" responsive because people will only use it with a wide screen. In that case the Responsive extension still puts into child rows what doesn't fit on the screen ... My clients love it :smiley:

    That's a good tip, @rf1234 , a nice way of getting that extra detail out!
