    I have a report with 2 picture box columns for boolean values.  I know from the documentation that PictureBox is ignored in the CSV export.  Is there a way to provide a hidden column with a text or checkbox alternative that could be hidden from the report view and other export types, but would be included in the csv export?

    Hi Karen,

    Hidden items will not be rendered in the CSV document. The purpose of the CSV rendering is to recreate the data layout of the report - Design Considerations for CSV Rendering.

    Thus my suggestion is to use the Checkbox item, which is rendered in the CSV as 0 or 1 (depending on the value) and the Checkbox.Text, if any. To make the Checkbox item display images in the report you can use its Checked/Uncheked/IndeterminateImage properties.

    Let us know if you need any further help.
