Issue of downloading data (the labels of choices) with using select_one_external

Hello guys
When using (select_one_external), and we download data, we get the choices from (select_one_external) in names instead of the labels
Is there a solution to get the data (in labels)
Many thanks :slight_smile: ,

Two possible workarounds:

  1. Save the label in an additional variable in your form (calculation with jr:choice-name() or instance() ).
  2. Add the labels in Excel in an extra column, e.g. based on a look-up table.
