When I export data with long numbers they atomatically get rounded

I have a form with a select_one question where the options are long numbers (16 digits) When I exported in XLS format KoBo automatically rounded them. This doesn´t happen when i exported them in the old version of XLS (XLS legacy format)

Welcome to the community, @JavierDQ! Could you also share with the community a screenshot of your issue so that the community should be able to understand your problem pictorially? At the same time, could you also let us know the question type (text or integer) you used for this variable?

Its a select_one question where the choices are numbers of 16 digits

Hi @JavierDQ, can you try exporting with the option “Store date and number responses as text” checked and see if the problem persists.

Hi @JavierDQ, I’m glad this solved the issue! Could you please give an example of what you expected and the actual value before trying this?
