    Though it is not possible to include the edit submission URL automatically in excel reports, it will be automatically included in integrated Google Docs spreadsheets:

    I needed this for existing records, not just new ones.  The forum has been excellent for snippets of code.  Downloading the Excel file from submissions and inserting a formula in a new column did the trick, by allowing me to edit submissions easily from within Excel.  thanks for the reply.
