    Combined submissions app -- not pulling the fields with apostrophes in labels

    Asked by eileenjst on December 02, 2013 at 04:23 PM


    I am using the combine submissions app to combine submissions from about 20 forms into one excel.  I can pull in all of the data from every field except the first one on each form, which on this form happens to be the name of the submittor.


    Instead, in the first excel column, I get the name of the form.   I tried 'unchecking' form name before I generated the excel, still the data and first column does not export.


    I've also tried to pull in only 3 fields from the forms but still can not pull in the first column of data. The entire column is lost.

    Any suggestions?

    It looks like that the Combine Submissions App is not able to handle the fields with apostrophes.

    As a workaround, you can rename your field labels, then the fields will be included into the report. For example, change the Student's Name to Student Name.

    I have submitted a bug report ticket, but I can not provide any ETA for when this issue will be fixed. We will let you know if we get any updates. Thank you.
