Custom Data Formats are not maintained on exporting reports to CSV.
You have set custom data formats for columns in your report. They are displayed properly in analysis and dashboard but on exporting in excel or csv format the default data format is exported and not the custom format.
The report exported to CSV should display the proper custom format of MM/YYYY.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1) Set Date M/Y in a Custom formatted column.
2) Now, export report in .CSV format.
3) In .CSV format the data is not the same as in the report.
4) Date M/Y Column.
5) Date M/Y Column Formula.
CAST("TRANSACTION_D"."Date" AS date)
