Form ID?

Hi,

Is there a Form ID # in the metadata or another means of distinguishing
between forms when exporting form data? I would like to merge the different
excel sheets that are produced when exporting and want to be able to still
distinguish between forms since some have the same name.

Thank you!

Hi Shabnam,

You might find it useful to use the xmlns, which is the namespace attribute
of the form and will be unique to each form. If you click “Show Deleted
Questions and Advanced Properties” from within a custom form export, you
will see the attribute info.@xmlns. You will see the same name within the
xmlns in the xml source view of the form itself.

Let me know if you need anything else regarding this.

Thanks,
