    Is there any way to get the Jotform data to parse out the data?

    The very non-tech savvy volunteers who will be opening this spreadsheet are not going to know what to do with it.

    I re-did the integration and now the output is a little easier to read... but still not as useful as you'd hope. Feature request: have Jotform parse out the data so you get separate columns for separate pieces of data. Seems like less work for JotForm to do it once than to ask thousands of users to write their own parsing scripts to accomplish exactly the same task, no?

    I re-did the integration to make it work better, and it did, but now it's back to filling the Paypal column with table and <tr> tags. Sigh.

    Hello Masalamedia.  May I recommend to you to post a new topic so that we could open a new ticket for the HTML table tags issue.  As this thread already has a new feature request for the development team to parse data

    Thanks for your change request. We will consider making this change in the future. It has been added to our feature requests list. 

    For now, I'd recommend using the HTML Table option instead of the Excel spreadsheet option in the reports.
