When you use Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services to export information to Microsoft Excel, no table headers appear in the Excel report.
This problem may occur if a second grouping level is defined on the table from which you export the information to Excel. If a second grouping level is defined on the table, no table headers appear in the Excel report regardless of whether the following conditions are true:
The grouping level is hooked to a related item.
Group header or footer rows are used in the report.
Data appears after the header or footer levels.
You are more likely to experience this problem if the information that you export to Excel contains a combination of the following items:
A table header is present or absent in the reporting output.
Group page breaks exist in the reporting output.
Repeatable table headers exist in the reporting output.
Multiple levels of grouping exist.
