For all non-marketing export definitions (e.g. those created/housed in Administration > Export Definitions), when used to generate a header file, the columns are not in the order specified in the export definition. The export definition's columns then get re-ordered to match that of the header file. The potential impact of this issue is that users have to use the header file when setting up mail merge templates, so the list of fields once the header is merged is out of order, and requires additional time in setup and testing to ensure the correct merge fields have been used in the correct place.
In the example below, the export definition's fields were added in the order they appear in the first screenshot.
