When retrieving data using crosstabs, on the screen my column names are
correct,but when saved to a text or excel file they change.
Example, on screen I have

serial number | 5Vout | 48Vin | operator resopnse ...
data data data data ...


But when I save the report as a text file I get:

serial number | Measured | Measured_1 | Measured_2
data data data data

The name of the column changes, and I have not been able to get this
data to save correctly. Thanks in advance for any help.

AFAIK, IM6 is supposed to fix some of this. It should have a new option to
save to a text file and keep computed fields etc. But to be honest, I
haven't seen the option yet during beta testing. I know it's available in
PB and I've mentioned it to PS already.
