    Did the export data sheets change to Java script format?

    Asked by hsad on June 19, 2013 at 04:56 PM

    I remember the data I would export was in xml format and I would open it with word. Now it seems to be in Java Scrip and when I open it, it doesn't show correctly. Now I cant copy and paste the info correctly.

    I am not sure which export data you are referring to. Can you plese describe to us more where we can try this export data capability on the form?

    In case you are refering instead to downloading the form's submissions data, please review this guide about that How-to-Download-Form-Submissions-to-Excel-CSV-PDF

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    You are correct, I was refering to downloading the form's submissions data. However, I did follow the steps in the How-to-Download-Form-Submissions-to-Excel-CSV-PDF and it still does the same thing. For you to get a better look at what I am seeing, I have attached a screen shot to this email for you to view. Please let me know why they are downloading as js and not excel. Maybe it is a setting or something that I am doing wrong. Thank you for your help.

    Hi, It Looks very Strange, How it coluld be a .js file. I think there may be Some caching issue on your browser. 

    I suggest you to Clear your browser cache, login again and try to Download now. If this doesn't helps, please try some other browser and let us know the result.

    I used Chrome browser to do a test download and I am able to download in xls format successfully.


    Thank you.
