    Export my data into excel, but instead of rows in columms

    Asked by INOVATEC on September 16, 2013 at 08:34 PM

    Hi Jotform Support,

    I've a problem in, when I export my information data into excel spreadsheet it only appears a part of it. This situation is duo the spreadsheet limits, it's only accepted 256 Columns per sheet and the data survey is   quite large.

    So to solve this problem I wonder if it's possible to invert the order of how the information is disposed. Thus, instead of exporting my data into excel columns I what to export into excel rows. I believe, with this situation is already possible to solve the problem of the limits of excel columns.


    Best Regards

    That's not possible with Jotform reports, we do not have such option. However, I think this is possible with MS Excel. I've made a quick search and found this "transpose", this might help: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/excel-help/rotate-data-by-converting-columns-to-rows-or-vice-versa-HP005203138.aspx

    You can also try it with CSV and open your data to CSV programs that might support more than 256, you can try this one: http://www.csvviewer.com/

    By the way, what excel version are you using? According to MS Excel 2007 spec, it supports up to 16,384 columns. May I suggest to try it with this one first after you download your excel file.

    Hope this helps. Regards!
