    Hi,

    I am trying to download a csv or excel file with Safari, on my iPad.  I have a spreadsheet app (iSpreadsheet).  I'm logged in to JotForm, and I'm looking at my submissions from a form.  When I click on Download as "CSV" or "Excel", I get the message "Generating", but then nothing happens.  When I open iSpreadsheet, I don't see the excel or csv file. 

    Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

    Thanks,

    Dina

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I think that mobile browser can not handle the download from our site. You can try to upload the submission Excel file from your computer to the iCloud and then open it using iPad.

    Thanks.  Would it work with a different browser (Chrome or Firefox for iPad)?

    We are hoping to review form answers at an event, and don't want to have to take the extra step to upload to the iCloud.

    Thanks,

    You can try it, but there are no any guarantees. The form builder was designed for the desktop browsers in the first place.

    If there is an internet connection available on your event, you may also consider using light weight online reports:

    Create an HTML Table Listing Report

    Grid Listing

    Thank you.

    Thanks. Building the HTML page seems to be the best option. And it works in chrome and safari on the iPad. Thanks for the suggestion. Dina
