    I need to see if anyone has any input or help they can give me.  I am using the export capabilities of the RadGrid and it exports fine but I need to find out if I can get any word highlighting that I have built into the dataset to be exported through the RadGrid export functions.

    I am doing a regex search for words in a particular column in the dataset.  Then I wrap that text in a span tag with css to make word appear highlighted.  Then I bind it to the radgrid.

    I would have thought that since the datatable had the html within the column information before it is bound to the radgrid it would show up in the exported documents of at least Word or Excel, and hoped it would for PDF as well but it is not showing.  Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas I might try to fix this problem.

    Try setting  the ExportOnlyData  property to false.

     RadGrid1.ExportSettings.ExportOnlyData = false
