Export entries to .xls file

UPDATE 24 Oct 2014. There is a plugin for this functionality available here. Click the Download ZIP button on the bottom right and you’ll get an installable WP plugin that will automatically export in .xls format when this plugin is active.

This guide will show you how to change the Quform entries directly to an .xls file instead of a .csv file.

Step 1

Download the PHPExcel library from this link and extract the zip file.

Upload everything inside the Classes folder of the PHPExcel library to the wp-content directory, so the files should be should be like this:

wp-content/PHPExcel.php
wp-content/PHPExcel/…more files…

Step 2

Edit the file wp-content/plugins/iphorm-form-builder/admin/admin.php, search in the file for function iphorm_export_entries() and replace the entire function with the code from here.

Now when you export entries from the Quform → Export page they will be exported directly to a .xls file.

Note: if you update the plugin this change to the admin.php file will be overwritten.
