How can I export HTML in a cell using [buttons] excel export

I have a column which has a html link in it.

json_encode('<a href="url.com">'.$row['name'] . '</a>')

I want this exported to Excel when the user uses the export button.
I have tested and the HTML is not being included in the cell during export.
If I use stripHtml: false - it adds the html link as text in the cell

Is this possible? Do I need to do something special?

    Hi @sjw01 ,

    We're happy to take a look, but as per the forum rules, please link to a test case - a test case that replicates the issue will ensure you'll get a quick and accurate response. Information on how to create a test case (if you aren't able to link to the page you are working on) is available here.

    Cheers,

    Colin

    Checkout this thread asking the same question:

    It will take some custom code to accomplish. I didn't see any threads where someone actually wrote the customer code. However it wasn't an exhaustive search.
