Ninja Forms +
Excel Export

Export Ninja Forms submissions to an Excel file

Exporting form submissions with multiline fields normally ends up with merged columns and manual corrections. Users could also type a CSV separator into one of your input fields, causing a column shift in your CSV file.

Ninja Forms Spreadsheet Export has two features to bypass these problems

  1. Export your data to the reliable Excel Open XML (XLSX) spreadsheet file format.
  2. Choose the fields you want to appear in your exported Excel file.

Please note that the “ZipArchive” PHP module is required for this addon to run. Please contact your host to ensure compatibility.
