    Report Columns in Excel Report

    Asked by AMKMCchurchcamp2013 on February 19, 2013 at 10:13 AM

    Hi. I need help. I do not have any submissions yet on my form as it is not published as yet on any platform. I would like to generate a report that shows the headers as columns in an Excel spreadsheet. I've tried to generate an Excel report and all i get is a blank spreadsheet, without any headers for the columns of cells in Excel. How can I make the headings visible in an empty Excel report?

    Can you please share to us the reason why the form header field should be use as column in the Excel Report?...

    From what I understand, the header field or the html field are not input fields, thus they will not have submissions data. If you noticed the columns in an excel report, they are input fields that will accumulate rows/data. 

    You can however, edit the excel report to include your own column field(header)

    Will await your updates.
