    On the Excel or CSV download, can you help expand the characters allowed in each column?

    Asked by juliegoodnight on March 16, 2011 at 11:39 AM

    Hi, love your forms. Thanks for all you do.

    One thing that would help us--we're using it for a TV show application-- is to allow us to download all that people write in the Excel or CSV format. RIght now, in that format it is cutting off everything after the first 50 characters. THe form is collecting the info--I have to go back to the original emails to paste that info back into the downloaded form.

    Is there an easier way to download all without combining and adding in the lost info? I need them to have enough space to tell us their story.

    All else is great!

    Hi there,

    I tested the form by entering several sentences making up more than a 100 characters
    on the fields that requires a detailed info. When I checked the downloaded excel and
    csv file all the info were present.

    Have you tried to enable the wrap text on Excel so that the whole collected info
    is shown?
