XLS-downloaded data not consistent with what is shown in Data/Table view

@york_rff, thank you for bringing this to our attention. Will try to replicate this and get back to you soon.

I’m facing the same issue. Would appreciate any tips if you figured out a way around this

No, I didn’t. Still waiting for the updated article.
