Hi –

I have a SharePoint list which is populated by an InfoPath form. On completion of the form, it is printed as a PDF.

The fields within the form are set up something like this;

ID
Name

Food
Category
Comments

Food
Category
Comments

Food
Category
Comments



The data held within the list is exported to Excel for analysis against all other forms in the list.

A new row is produced within Excel for each form submitted, so the data is presented as follows

ID
Name
Food
Category
Comments
Food
Category
Comments
Food
Category
comments
1
John
apple
fruit
green
carrot
vegetable
orange
salmon
fish
pink

<tbody>
</tbody>


For the purpose of analysis I need the data to be shown as follows.

ID
Name
Food
Category
Comments
1
John
apple
fruit
green


carrot
vegetable
orange


salmon
fish
pink

<tbody>

I have looked into the following options without much luck;

  • Send the Data to MS Access, format a report and export to Excel – problem is that the report does not retain its formatting when exported.
  • I have looked at some formatting options in Excel including creating pivot tables and slicers from the raw data.
  • Looked at changing the SharePoint List views, and InfoPath controls

The restraints I have are as follows.

  • The data must be collected from a SharePoint list.
  • All data must collected in the same form.
  • The data has to be exported to Excel for analysis.


Hoping someone can offer some advice.

Thanks in advance.
