Hi Sanjay 

When we download HRM - Vacancy Applications from the Data view in any format (Export to PDF, Export to XLS, Export to XLSX, Export to DOCX, Export to RTF, Export to CS), we noticed that these "<b>", "</b>", "<br>", "</br>" appears in all the download formats  - refer to figure 1.

Hi Aarti, the reason for the formatting is that it is clear to understand the multiple fields displayed. We use this standard formatting in all views. 

The workaround would be to search and replace '<b>' and '<b/>' with '' in Excel.

for convenience, I have changed it so the formatting is removed.
