    Is it possible to have submission spreadsheet field answers in rows, not columns?

    Asked by t3rra on October 06, 2016 at 03:19 PM

    There's probably a way to do this in Excel, though if it could be done automatically via Jotform that would be great. Currently, my form has about 40 questions, whose answers will need to be downloaded into a spreadsheet. When I open the spreadsheet, each answer is in a separate column. However, the fullfillment house I will be sending these orders to requires each question/answer be on a separate row, one on top of the other, as opposed to side by side.

    Is there a way in Jotform to make the submission field answers display in vertical rows as opposed to coulmns? Thank you for any suggestions.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to integrate submissions in that way, since default layout in Spreadsheets is like it is, columns are horizontal. 

    But you could use Transpose in Excel, I found this guide for you on how to use it, it basically converts columns to rows.

    Hope it helps.

    If we can be of any more assistance please let us know.
