    Hi,

    I have made a form with a configurable list witch works great!

    I export the file as an excel file and import it again in Ms Access for further use in my database.

    I've build a way to filter the columns out of the field so they can be stored in different columns in Access. I do that by checking the info between the ":" after the first column and the comma "," before the second column. Unfortunally the last entry (last column) does not ends with a comma.

    Is there a way to add that comma so my code works? Or is there another way to solve this problem?

    Is this the form you are working on? http://www.jotformeu.com/form/60462364363353 

    How about adding another column, and hide it with custom CSS like:

    .col3{

        visibility: hidden;

    }

    Example:

    Hi,

     

    I've updated my form with a 4th column ad used the CSS code to hide the column.

    On the jotform site the column is hidden but when i open the form with my phone or with my pc it is not.

    What goes wrong?

     

    Kind regards,

    I cloned your form and I can see that the 4th column is hidden properly.

     

    However, when I checked your form (http://www.jotformeu.com/form/60462364363353), the 4th column is showing.

    Can you please try to replace the CSS code above with this one:

    .col4 { display: none !important; }

    Please put it on the custom CSS widget just like what you previously did.

    Hope that works. Let us know if not. Thank you.
