    To order the cells you can select all the contents and then click sort and filter > sort newest to oldest:

    The Sort & Filter button on the Home tab

    Hi Carina,

    of course I know how to sort in excel

    my question is when I saved submissions to excel file from jotform submission page, before it was showing new submission at the top row of excel

    but now I am saving submissions to excel file from jottform, after saving excel file, when I open the excel file, the oldest submission at the top row

    I know it is not a big problem but why something changed without doing anything..

    thanks Carina

    Sorry, I didn't mean to provide useless information. Maybe it is connected with the file error of the original thread, as I was able to download a submission's list with the correct order:

    I will update the ticket.

    If you need further support please let us know.
