A report that contains overlapping controls can produce a corrupted document layout when exported to tabular formats (such as XLS, XLSX, HTML, or RTF).

Enable the ShowExportWarnings option to paint overlapping controls red. To determine which controls overlap and which export formats should not be used, hover over the highlighted controls.
