    Unfortunately, using configurable list widget will only render a single column in the submissions.

    If you use our Grid Report, the information will be separated by columns.

    You can use commas as a separator to make columns within Excel.

    Go to the Data tab and select text to columns under data tools then select delimiters and hit next. Then select comma as the delimiter and hit finish.

    You can check this guide for more information:

    Hope this information helps.

    Thank you.

    HI Richie, 

    Thanks for the idea , 

    i tried Grid Report and it looks fine and perfect. 

    but the other experiment with Google Spreadsheet : Go to Data => split text to Column , it works but each text are seperated, means if i submit for 4 products in a day there will be the long extend of each products. which is not rang in order as a row. 15360274041.PNG

    Unfortunately, when Configurable list widget is used, it is hard to export its data to Spreadsheet/Excel because it acts as one field for the form, therefore, one for the integration.

    I'm afraid that we cannot adjust that, so another alternative would be to use Input table field:

    Or, which will work best, to have all fields created with separate basic fields:

    Since only that will ensure that each field is exported to separate cell in Excel.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!

    Hi , is the input table can be calculated ? 

    Because I will use the Qty and text And few condition also. Between text and Qty. In configurable widget I couldn’t perform calculation and condition. So it’s sad.

    Is the input table can be calculated?

    Calculations can be performed on an input table fields. Please refer to the guide below:

    However, Input table field is limited to have only one type of field throughout the table while configurable list allows different types of fields in each row.

    we also can't use the drop down box in input table.

    Yes, unfortunately, that is not possible.

    If you know the final number of rows that your customers will add (or if you can limit them to number of rows they can add), probably the best solution will be to create such workflow with basic fields as I advised above, since you will then have full control over calculations, conditions and exporting to Excel/Spreadsheet.

    If you need any assistance, please let us know.

    Thank you!
