I have a multi select text field in a table in which the values export to a spreadsheet without issue.  I have a lookup for this field in another table, which populates without issue in a report I've created.  However, when I save the report as a spreadsheet, the values in the multi-select field do not export (all other fields export without issue).  What could be causing this?

A work around is to create a formula text field with the formula ToText([my multi select field])
