Report Formatting

Alteryx Partner

Good afternoon!


I have a quick question about formatting on report output. I have a report that is not lining up in uniform rows. I've attached a picture, but I for the life of me cannot figure out how to get everything uniform and lined up correctly. Is there a way to force the columns to line up correctly?


Any help is appreciated.

I've noticed this too.  One thing you can try is to output to Excel format; then generate other formats from Excel (save as PDF or HTML for example).

(Not ideal I realize, especially given the manual stp in Excel...)

Unfortunatley, we are trying to recreate a report taht is already sent to the enterprise in the Alteryx (preferred) format, thus, automating it as much as possible without the possiblity of excel or adobe faililng.

Another thing you could experiment with is the orientation highlighted below; if the number of columns are the same, they should then line up.
