    my Unique ID padding does not work

    Asked by AreteScholars on January 12, 2016 at 01:20 PM

    I have an alpha prefix (GA.Returning-) and padding of 4 zeros (0000) in the properties.  But looking at the exported excel file for submissions, there is no padding.  I get (for example) GA.Returning-1 or GA.Returning-7, GA.Returning-10.  so consequently, when I 'sort' by the unique ID, excel doesn't sort in the actual order.   Everything that starts with a "1", is sorted .. ex. 1, 10,100, etc.

    After reviewing your form. I noticed that you do not have any padding in your UNIQUE ID field.

    Once you have place the number of 0 padding you like, press OK and save you form to save the changes. If you still require our assistance, please let us know and we will be glad to take another look.
