I can't help you with your first question.
But, as far as printing to Excel - when you export a report to Excel, some reports will ask if you want the export in rows or columns. If you say columns, names will be in rows and the other info in columns. If you say rows, the names will be in columns and the other info in rows. Other reports (like the outline descendant report) only export one way, but you can use Excel's columns to rows commands to turn the info "inside-out" and in reverse format)
To export a report to excel, with the report preview in front of you:
1) Click on the Share button in the upper right
2) Choose export csv
3) Choose rows or columns - if you get that screen.
4) You will be asked it you want to see the file - say yes
5) If it brings it up in Excel, used File > Save as to change the format from csv to excel.
You may have some cleaning up to do, the basic report is there.
