Support » Plugin: Forminator - Contact Form, Payment Form & Custom Form Builder » Blank fields not being exported

  • Resolved huskyracer


    Hi guys

    I’m exporting submissions and fairly certain I’ve updated Forminator since I created my original test form.
    My issue is that the csv submission export doesn’t contain ‘blanks’ for empty fields in the form which means that when I open it in Excel, none of the data is in the correct columns where fields have been left blank.

    Any ideas please?
    Many thanks

    Hi @huskyracer,

    I hope you are doing well today!

    1- Open blank excel sheet or any sheet you want to add the data, go to Data->From Text/CSV
    2- Choose the Forminator CSV export file and import
    3- Click Load and import values as columns including the blank submissions
    4- Result –

    Kind regards,

    Hi Zafer

    Thanks for your speedy response.
    I did try this yesterday and again this orning but it’s still not putting data in the correct columns
    The entry amounts shown in Col S and T should be in column AT

    Many thanks for your help!

    Hi there,

    I’m experiencing this bug as well. When you have a field as optional (e. g. you don’t show it if a certain drop down value is selected), the export does not insert a “,” for this empty field.

    Title (Mr,Ms,Family)
    Firstname (this is only shown in case of Mr or Ms)

    Export (today, wrong):

    Correct would be:

    Hi @huskyracer,


    Sorry for the inconvenience caused because of this. It is a known bug that our developers are already aware of and are currently working on a fix.

    As a quick workaround, we recommend reverting the plugin version to 1.18.2.

    You can find the previous version via the following URL under “Previous Versions”:

    Yep, saw this “fix” in another thread. 1.18. is working as expected (expect of date including a “,” in language German which causes trouble with the comma separation, but that’s addressed in another thread as well).

    Thank you for the good work anyways 👍 Apart from the bugs I really like your plugin.

    I’ve just done the rollback and it works a dream.
    Thank you so much for your help guys and also @xampit for contributing as well.

    Great work guys!



    Hello !

    I have the same issue here but I can’t rollback as I’ve used a lot of group field, witch arent included in the 1.18 version.

    Can I expect you guys to resolve this soon ?

    Thank you !

    Hi @anthonyflibustiers

    The fix is already being tested and if it passes tests it’s expected to be included in version 1.22 release.

    Kind regards,
