    How can I have a field name that is different from the form question?

    Asked by kgreenstone on February 02, 2015 at 07:22 PM

    Hello, How can I change Google Excel integrated spreadsheet field names without losing integration? I am not adding or deleting fields, I just want the field names to differ from the form questions (so they match my Access database), but when I change the excel fields I lose integration (and when I exit and return to the google excel sheet, it reverts back anyway).

    Hello kgreenstone,

    So basically you want to change the column names of your integrated google spreadsheet. Is that correct?

    Unfortunately it is not possible to change the column name of google spreadsheet. If you edit the column names, the data will not be copied to the edited column or it can cause the integration to break completely.

    Hope this answers your query.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
