    Thank you for contacting us.

    The submission PDF layout is not much editable, but there are two options on a form Submissions page affect the PDFs - Show Headers and Texts and Include Form Title in PDF.

    There is no way to get the excel files instead. However, you can try our Google Spreadsheet integration, and other kind of reports.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    Mike_T , I don't think you are understanding what luisitopr  is trying to do here.

     I also want this in an excel, the reason why I use forms to congregate lots of data so that I can sort it. Having a lot of PDFs makes it impossible to sort. Google forms puts answers in a spread sheet . That makes sense, then you can sort it.
