    File extension .xls at download from JotForm has changed to .js

    Asked by Helmut512 on July 04, 2013 at 08:18 AM

    Hi

    when downloading sumbissions from a form from JotForm as an Excel format there is now the file extension .js instead of the correct extension .xls.

    Why? Is there a chance to correct this to get Excel file as Excel files, not as supposed JavaScripts?

    This would help us a lot.

    Thank you,

    Helmut
