    While testing the .cvs and excel extracts of results for the Monthly website service input form, the excel and csv files downloaded .js (javascript)

    Hi,

    I was not able to reproduce same issue on my end. I was able to download the lone submission in your form as CSV file

     

    And I used the ordinary Notepad to open the file.

    I am suspecting maybe after the download, some default program in your computer might have auto rename the file due to file association.

    Can you try renaming your downloaded file -- remove the .js extension and leave it at .csv then, open again with a regular text editor (i.e. notepad)

    Will await your update.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.  Problem was in Safari, works fine in Firefox.  Might be a setting, as long as I can get it:)
