      Description

      When producing Excel reports, Pentaho currently sacrifices cell integrity in order to make the report match an HTML report.

      If such Excel report is used for data manipulation, merged cells could cause referential integrity issues.

      This enhancement request is to prevent cell merging when producing Excel reports.
