If you're familiar with a little python, you can follow this article I wrote and get export in CSV all fields into a single file. It should work with username and password on Jira server.

It seems that the excel report doesn't include the comment field. The only one export that allow you to export all the comment is the CSV export, but you will have all the comment of the issues.

So you have several option, create a field and a script that will copy the last comment into that field and export it or create a macro in that will retrieve the last comment (not sure if it's possible, i'm not a vba expert)
