Exporting data to excel without Excel 2016

Hi Everyone,


I am creating a App to book vehicles in  and out of a compound.  Due to there being over 500 vehicles in compound I am using CDS as the search function is able to be delegated.  My work does not have Excel 2016 so Power Apps add-in not available to to open in Excel.  I can export the data and open in Excel but the coluimns and formatting are wrong.  Any ideas on how to resolve this.  I have a work Google drive account but search function is not able to be delegtated from this source.

Re: Exporting data to excel without Excel 2016


Hi Howard,


Thanks for posting. Have you tried using the CSV export? It would require you to set your formats within Google once you open it, but this would allow you to export from Google again in CSV and bring it back into CDS.


If you haven't tried already, you can access the "Export Data" option from the main entity list, select your entity and then by clicking the little arrow next to Export to Excel, it will allow you to pick CSV.





Please let me know if this helps,
