    Exporting records from Filemaker Go into Excel

      Exporting records from Filemaker Go into Excel

      Post

      I am trying to export a table from Filemaker Go by e-mailing in .xlsx format. The problem I'm running into is that the fields export in alphabetical order, instead of maintaining the order assigned in the Filemaker table.  Is there a way to change the order that the fields are exported to Excel? 

      Thank you in advance for any help.

          Thank you for your post.

          When you tap export, and "Export Setup" window appears.  The third item down is the Fields.  Tap this to select the fields.  Although the fields originally appear in alphabetical order, there is an icon to the far right of each field.  Tap and hold this icon, and then drag it upwards or downwards to the position you want it to appear in the Excel file.  Once you get the field order the way you want, click "Done" and continue on with the other options.

          Let me know if you need additional clarification.
