I have defined a title and a header for a particular view. Neither is output, only the fields are output and they show up as a table (even in a DOC).

How can I get the output to look like the page view I have which has:

TITLE
HEADER TEXT
Label1: Field1
Label2: Field2
...
LabelX: FieldX

I'm not sure but I'm having the same issue. I think its a theming template issue but I am still a noob.

The default views template of the header area looks like this

see views-view.tpl.php line 36

<?php if ($header): ?>
    <div class="view-header">
      <?php print $header; ?>
    </div>
  <?php endif; ?>

But this module's theming calls the $header and $footer variables to add the wrapping elements around the body.

see views-data-export.tpl.php

<?php print $header ?>
<?php print $body ?>
<?php print $footer ?>

This template is used on every data export type. I think the solution might be to break the wrapping elements off of into separate .tpl.php files for each data type. Then ensure the $header variable is being passed the normal data and place it within a conditional statement with a validator to ensure the data being rendered won't break the format.

But again I'm still a noob.

Also I am using 7.x-3.0-beta6

You should be able to use the header specific template: views-data-export-doc-header.tpl.php to change the header output of a DOC export.

I have the same problem. the Views header and footer are not output

To address this issue, I used the $static variable to output a header with the first row - adding a php customfield with this code:

<?php
if (!isset($static)) print "your header";
$static = true;
?>
