Reporting tools header shading date column converts to text should be a date in output


Hi I am using reporting tools- Table / Render to format my excel output so the  header is filled with a color/shading. On the final output the date column converts to text. Prior to the Table the date field is a date how do I make the column a date format on the final output? Note I put a select tool after the Table and the field format is a date - I believe it is the Render tool converting the date field to text.
