Hello community, i am newbie to FileMaker and so far i have completed 2 easy databases but I have an issue on my 3rd database and was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction.


The 3rd database consists of products and we are allowed to order a certain number of products per year from this company and they have a very strict way on how they want their order forms.


The order form has to be in an excel format and laid out in a specific way, so i have copied their order form in a report in filemaker pro to make it look like the order form. I now want to export this report in an excel format without loosing the layout?


The issue, is that i need it to work on webdirect? If not can it be done on pro?


There will be approx 3-4 people that will be using this database, that's why i have taken the webdirect route.


Notes: I am using: FileMaker Server and Pro 15 - Web Browsers will be either Chrome and or Edge for webdirect.


Any suggestions would be appreciated.
