I have a little problem where someone can probably help me.
I want to export the records of a confiforms form to Excel/CSV. The export is activated in the form and in the table view I want to export.
The Export button shows me 5 possibilities to export the data (CSV, XLS, JSON, XML and RAW), but klicking on them does nothing, only RAW works (giving me a file I have to transform and reformat before I can use it).
Did someone encounter a similar problem? How can I make the Excel and/or the CSV export work?
I am glad guys you have created a new macro, but adding the same comment in every other question in the community is not a very good idea in my humble opinion.
Especially if it does not really answers the question asked by a topic starter
Hi @Alex Medved _ConfiForms_ ,
I'd like to jump in here with a question of my own if that's ok.
I use ConfiForms with the table filter and have a need to export the data collected.
I have limited the view to 500 rows per page and the export to xls only exports what the user views (in this case page 1 of x: the first 500 rows only) and not the entire data set.
I'm still on Server 7.4.14 with ConfiForms 3.5.8. We will soon migrate to Data Center. Has this issue been solved in DC?
This is how the export works - you export what you see.
There is "nothing to solve", as there is no issues with that and is by design
You can have own exports crafted to your needs as explained here https://wiki.vertuna.com/display/CONFIFORMS/Data+Export+tricks+and+hints
Thanks for the quick reply! I really appreciate it.
As much as I understand your explanation, to me this does not make any sense.
I don't understand why you would limit the export to the current view and not provide an "export all data" option.
To me this should be the default behavior. Either all in one sheet or subsequent pages into different sheets.
Well, we seems to have different opinions on this. But we see this much more confusing then you see one thing but get something else in the export
This option will be available in the upcoming ConfiForms update (version 3.5.9)
Hard to tell. Could you open the support ticket with us, so we can have a look?
(we have had one regression some time ago about the export links, but that was fixed in 2.19.1, introduced in 2.19...)
What problem do you have? Export from ConfiForms does not work?
