Hi @mizanvai, I seem to have answered this with your other question:


thank you @Josh


My form has 159 questions. I would also like to specify the columns to download. Before I commit in doing this, is there a limit to the length of the URL? I can only imagine the length of the URL if I specify the names of 100 columns. Thanks.

Hi @raffy_m, are you trying to download the data as a CSV/XLS file or as JSON?
