[resolved] Entries export problem (5 posts)

    I have just upgraded from VFB to VFB Pro on my website. Now, when I try to export the entries from my forms, I can't open the file with Excel, whether I use .csv or .xls.

    Using Excel on OSX, it says "HTML Import Errors - Problems came up with the following areas during load: Table".
    Using Excel on PC, it says "The file you are trying to open <filename.xls> is in a different format than specified by the file extension.

    Any idea what the problem might be? Thanks!

    Hi, I've identified the bug.

    The DateTime stampe in missing a T.

    Currently output time as: 2012-12-28 16:33:45

    IF the output were changed to: 2012-12-28T16:33:45

    The file would load.

    Hi Matthew. I've just purchased Visual Form Builder Pro in order to export my entries to .xls file. But I get xml error about datetime data cell (ex.: 2012-12-13 19:41:09). I changed timestamp at class-export.php as warptimer said above but that didn't work :( Urgent help please!
