Hi there,

So I created some surveys using the desktop app and collected some data. However, when I download the data the column headers have the 'label' name for every instead of the name. This is only happening to text data type.

Consider the survey below:

typenamelabel
textQ201b_nameQ201b: Record the Name of the Place:  [ASK FOR NAME OF NEAREST PLACE AND RECORD NAME OF THE PLACE]
textQ205kOther (Specify:)
textQ209nOther (Specify:)

 

When I download the data, column names look like:

Q201b: Record the Name of the Place:  [ASK FOR NAME OF NEAREST PLACE AND RECORD NAME OF THE PLACE]Other (Specify:)Other (Specify:)

 

Instead of:

Q201b_nameQ205kQ209n

 

Any help is much Appreciated.

Paul

Hi Paul,

I can't reproduce this problem when publishing using 3.12 Connect to ArcGIS Online (exporting to SHP and File Geodatabase). Are you using ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise? Also, what format are you exporting to (i assume you're exporting via the Survey123 website)?

Thanks,

Brett
