This is a limitation. See Limitations on the Qlik Help Site regarding When downloading data

When downloading data from a table, styling is not preserved. This includes colors, fonts, hyperlinks, and more.

Example:

Hi @Daniele_Purrone 

I am surprised:

You have the option in Qlik Sense Enterprise during the export to choose whether you want the formatting (and thus the sum within a table) or not.

In Qlik SAAS (Cloud) this option is missing and therefore you cannot export a table with the sum of columns.

Doesn't Qlik have a "cloud first" strategy?

Hi @_datadude !
Yes, Qlik has a Cloud first strategy for new functionalities.

However, the exporting functionality had to be redeveloped from scratch for the cloud environment and doesn't necessarily have feature parity its client managed equivalent, which is based on Windows-only libraries.

Please, feel free to suggest and idea to product management, to give more weight to any improvement in this area!
