    I have already imported the form and the response data from AdobeFormsCentral and I now want to get the responses that have arrived on the AFC form since that first import into JotForms.

    How do I only import a few responses?

    As soon as this is donw I will stop using the AFC and move proper onto JotrFroms

    You can do this by following the method 2 provided on the guide you already looked:

    You would need to select only the submissions you want to transfer to your JotForm account when you're downloading them from your FormsCentral account.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    Hi Raul

    i am finding the instructions quite difficult to understand and follow

    I have got as far as downloading the csv file

    I am stuck at the part to import into JotForms and making sure the heading are correct

    the headings seem to me to be o.k although they are not in the order that i would have expected

    the instructions say to add missing headers but my question is do i reorder the headings that appear at point 5 to match the csv file or assume that as all of the heading titles are there that it will all be fine to import as it is?

    The order of the heading should match the order of the data.  In the example, the headings are as such:

    "62_Time Submitted_textbox", "3_LAST NAME:_textbox", "4_FIRST NAME:_textbox", "5_STREET ADDRESS:_textbox", "6_CITY:_textbox", "7_STATE:_textbox", "9_ZIP CODE:_textbox", "8_EMAIL ADDRESS:_email", "10_PHONE NUMBER:_textbox","58_DATE OF BIRTH_datetime", "12_NAME OF SCHOOL:_textbox", "19_GRADUATED:_dropdown", "20_G.P.A.:_textbox"
    And the fields are:
    "January 23, 2015 3:44 PM","Rosemary","Zimmerman","328 LOWELL STREET","LEXINGTON","MA","02420","","781) 860-0012","08/28/1983","LEXINGTON HIGH SCHOOL","yes","3.0"
    "January 23, 2015 3:44 PM",Rosemary,Zimmerman,328 LOWELL STREET,LEXINGTON,MA,02420,,781) 860-0012,08/28/1983,LEXINGTON HIGH SCHOOL,yes,3.0
    Each heading needs to be in the same position as the field it is related to.  In the example, "62_Time Submitted_textbox" and "January 23, 2015 3:44 PM" are first.  The heading matches the data.  You will indeed need to order them properly.
