    I edited a form by removing questions and adding questions. I have deleted all data from submissions. In the table view, the last question I added shows up pretty early in the columns.

    Can I save the form again so that the table view will now display with the questions in the correct order?

    Hi Susan! To reset the tables view of a form, you'll need to delete the applied table view completely and then re-create it. Following is how you can do this:

    1. Access your tables list and locate this form's table view.
    2. Select the table view and from the "More" menu, trash it.
    3. Then go back to your forms view and then click on submissions. This will re-create the Tables view for your form.

    Please give it a try, let us know if you face any issues.

    Thank you!

    The first time I followed your instructions, it worked. But, I have now changed the form again and once again the order of columns in the table view are not in the correct order. I tried following the directions, but I didn't have any submissions and so nothing changed. Do I need submissions in order to make the 'trash' action reset the columns into the order of the questions on the survey?
