If you export content from Report Designer to Excel and end up with unexpectedly merged columns in the output, you probably have a horizontal alignment problem with your column header or footer labels. If a label spans two columns, then the Pentaho Reporting engine will force the two columns to merge in the output.

Check your horizontal elements for overlapping column. If you need more information on this topic, refer to the section: Align elements.
