When exporting Items with Sub-Items, the fields you want to see in your exports need to be visible in the Sub Items
This applies to Export > Export to Word
, Export > Export to Excel
and Export > Office Templates > Export to Roundtrip
In these exports, fields will not be exported unless they are visible in the Sub Items
tab, even if they are visible in the parent Item view.
The Sub Items
tab is critical for configuring export fields and is located in the parent Item's View, on the left.
To set the fields you want to export, you need to have the List View
selected in this tab.
By clicking on the cog you will open a window. Here, fields can be selected or de-selected according to what you want to see in the export.
All fields selected will be visible in the Sub Items
tab and will be exported, even if they do not exist in the parent Item.
As opposed to the List View
, the Reading View
fields are not configurable and the cog is not visible when the Reading View
Exporting Items with Sub-Items while in Reading View
will only export the fields Headings
In Export > Office Templates > All Items Details
export, the described behavior does not apply, since the parent Item fields are exported instead of the Sub Items
Also, the Office Template Coverage Explorer
export, due to its nature, it is not influenced by the Sub Items
tab in its fields, and the same goes for custom templates
