     For example, the data currently goes in row format, but I would like it to report in Excel a specific way. I would like the student's name, ID#, and grade to repeat in the first three columns and eight rows, then I would like each elective choice listed in the fourth column in the order of preference (1st Choice Elective listed first, then Second Choice Elective, etc.:

    Unfortunately, you can only choose which fields will be used in the Excel generated report, there is not a way to order data and customize it as you need.

    You may also take a look to the Zapier integration with JotForm and Excel, you may find the feature you need there:

    Hope this helps.
