    Geolocation: Display Latitude and Longitude in separate columns of excel.

    Asked by anasidriss on March 31, 2017 at 01:51 PM


    I have built form https://form.jotform.com/70894509900260

    I have an issue when I export results in excel:

    1)  Latitude and Longitude comes in one column called Geolocation using the Geolocation widget. But is there a way to get them in separate columns?

    Hello Anas,

    Please note that "Geo location" widget is a single form field and that's the reason it displays the Latitude and Longitude value in one column which is separated by comma. If you need to the values to be separated in two different columns of excel spreadsheet, you can achieve it by taking advantage of "Text to Columns" feature of excel. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you:  https://superuser.com/questions/352253/how-do-i-separate-a-comma-separated-list-into-two-columns-in-excel

    Hope this helps.
