Exporting to Excel WITHOUT formatting

This is a rather straightforward question, but I haven't been able to find an answer, as most people either want to add additional formatting or simply want to know if exporting is even possible.


I'm curious if the Excel exporting can happen without the data being formatted as an Excel "Table", with the blue and white and filters, like in the below screenshot. Most end users wish to mess with the data after they've exported and it already being formatted as a Table can hinder that. Plus, most end users don't know anything, even for something as simple as converting the table back to a range.


I get the feeling this is something that's hardwired in and cannot be changed, but I thought I'd ask.
