I've seen some troubleshooting, but I can't seem to solve my problem.
With QB2006 I had been using for years, I was able to export my data to Excel 2007 without much problems. Now with QB2020 Pro Desktop, I can't seem to obtain the 2 last columns to work right. I am using Microsoft 365 MSO 64 bits.
At first, I tried all the possible ways to convert the cells from Text to any kind of numbers, without success.
I've tried modifying the Regional settings for the computer, and many other things, but I am not getting ahead.
Now, it is important for me to keep the formatting as ### ###.##, thereby using a period between dollars and cents, and a space between hundreds and thousands.
At this point, I would love to be able to use the reporting directly to Excel without having to use the CVS detour...
A note: In the picture above, if for example I delete the space between the 1 and the 8 in the 1849.29 (first row) then the calculation is made until the -2 028.24. If I delete the space between the 2 and the 0, it will populate the Balance column until the next number. I did try to make a search and replace for that space, but it doesn't work.
Please .... help?

I will certainly contact your contact. I am sure I'm not the only one trying to figure this out. W10 can be tricky with certain things...
I'll post back here if / when we figure this out.
It seems to be a problem with Windows, Microsoft Office and QB settings that don't "understand" each other.
In my case, I had an increase of workload, so I could not dedicate more time to solve the problem. It is irritating since before I migrated to the 2020 version, that feature worked flawlessly. Now, when I export to Excel, in the box "Send Report to Excel", I click on the "Advance" button, and deselect the Auto filtering option. When in Excel, I select the part with the amounts, and change the format to Numbers, and it seems to work for all amounts less than thousands. For the thousands amounts, I need to remove the spacing between the thousand and hundred for the amount to be taken into account in the calculations. So far, honestly, I only had the patience to export to Excel to do my cashflow. Other reports are longer, and I have no time to remove lines and lines of spaces ...
I don't remember how things are when using the .csv file export... last I used it, it seemed to work, but the formatting is lost...
Maybe someone else had better luck?
Thanks for getting back with further information, Mouselette. At this level, I'd suggest reaching out to Excel's support team for the best advice on how to move forward.
Here's the contact link to Microsoft: Microsoft Support.
It is finally figured out :-)
The problem is that QB works in English, and my W10 settings were for French.
The resulting reports are in English, and it's a real pain in the b**t since we function in French. But the numbers jive at least...
Have a great day!
