    Form is not forwarding data to Google Spreadsheet when US Dollar symbol is present to the field label

    Asked by 2ga42adcy31 on October 07, 2014 at 12:48 AM

    Re-integration did load the previous missing values....however...when I submitted a new one, again the problem went back...no values for some of the fields.

    Also, re-integration created a new spreadsheet, not really a problem.

    After a few tests, I've found out that it was the US dollar sign preventing the form from forwarding data to Google Spreadsheet sheet.

    I have this thread forwarded to our developers. For now, I would advise changing your field label to "USD" instead of the "$" currency symbol. Then re-integrate the form to Google Spreadsheet.

    You will be notified via this thread when updates are available.

    Thank you!

    Ok, now that the missing values have been fixed after removing the $ symbol....another issue came out of it.

    The column headings in the Google Spreadsheet have extra trailing character that I can't understand why it shows up. The labels in the form do not have it and yet it shows up.

    The issue regarding the $ has been resolved as indicated by my colleague.

    Can you remove your current integration and enter the $, then recreate the integration? Please inform us if you are still experiencing both the integration and trailing character issue.

    We do apologize of the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. We await your response.

    I have removed and re-did the integration, the issue of the trailing character is still there as shown in the screenshot below.
