    You must be referring to the included date in the filename of the Excel exported data.

    It seems that this date is base on the latest Submission Date of the submission data.

    Example, if the form submission has a latest submission as of 06-01-2015, that will be the date that will be included in the generated filename of the Excel file.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you require further assistance.

    Thanks.
