Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 20.0.0.1 and create some fast
    rendered pivot tables. You export these tables to an Excel
    workbook. On Export to Excel dialog you select to export all
    visible objects and as export option you select "Starting in a
    specific cell" for location in worksheet and enter a starting
    cell e.g.C3.
    This would mean that all exported objects should be placed on
    column C in the Excel workbook starting on C3.
    However, on the exported Excel file you see that this worked for
    the syntax logs but all exported fast rendered pivot tables are
    exported to location in column A.
    
    this was repoted to IBM SPSS Development. As a workaround please
    create full rendered legacy tables and export to Excel using a
    startcell location. This will work as expected.
