    Submission ID mismatch

    Asked by travelandevents on September 10, 2012 at 07:14 PM


    I am working on a form for people to submit files. In testing it, I'm coming across the following confusing issue:

    If I login to my account and go to My Forms and then Submissions, I see the submissions in form view (where I can page through them) with a grid list of all submissions below that.

    On my account page, I am looking at the most recent submission, ID# 213126566861603900. It is labeled at the top on the form view and also in the "ID" field (it is the submission in the first row). But, when I download the submission report as an Excel file and/or as a CSV file, I get a different ID# for that submission.

    I have confirmed that I am looking at the right submission. But in my Excel download, the ID appears as 213126566861604000 and in my CSV file, it is 213126566861603000.

    Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

    It is probably happening because the number is too large for Excel. The number you see on CSV should be the correct number.
