Try the new Advanced Submit Service
We were always among the best when it came to supporting Excel forms. With the Advanced Submit Service, we send you not only the plain contents of a form, but the whole form exactly as it looked on the server when the visitor entered data into it. You can also have the Advanced Submit Service store submitted forms on our server until you download them all at once in the file format of your choice.
The standard forms processor simply sends the contents of each form to your Inbox as a plain text e-mail. With the fee-based Advanced Submit Service, the e-mail instead contains the whole form, maintaining the original form layout from the web server.
The Advanced Submit Service allows you store submitted forms in a database for later retrieval. This is extra useful when the volume of submitted forms makes it impractical to handle each form separately. When you want to process a batch of forms, you just download all the saved forms at the same time. You can download the forms data as a spreadsheet or in several other file formats.
Downloading forms from the server to your personal computer doesn't erase them from the server. This makes it easy to create tailored downloads, e.g. "all forms that were submitted last week". An advanced filtering mechanism allows you to select exactly what forms to download based on their contents, using an AutoFilter mechanism similar to the one in Excel.
