    How to remove some form fields from EXcel or CSV report?

    Asked by menstrom on May 23, 2016 at 11:47 AM

    When I export to csv or Excel, there are some fields in my form that I do not want to have in the export file.  Is it possible to suppress some fields from being exported?

    Also, I would like to have specific field names for the fields that I export that are not necessarily the labels that I have assigned to the fields, because the labels are the questions but the field names should be different.  For instance, the question is "Check the appropriate option that describes your housing status", but the field name should be HousingStatusCode.  Can I name the fields something other than their labels for the exported file?

    Thanks,

    Marilyn

    You it is possible to remove fields from your Excel or CVS report. To achieve that on submission page of your form before you create your report, click on properties option and uncheck fields that you do not want to be shown inside of your report. 

    I have moved your other question to separate thread and we will provide you an answer there shortly. https://www.jotform.com/answers/845024
