automatically export to csv to be displayed on webpage

  1. hi can the form automatically save to an existing csv file so that it can be displayed on a webpage without having to manually do the work? also where is the data stored? or where would the CSV file be stored?

    Gravity Forms can export entries as a CSV. The CSV is created and then pushed to your computer, and not saved on your server. Gravity Forms can create WordPress posts, but beyond that has no real ability to display submitted data on your website. Data is stored in a table inside your WordPress database.

    Let me know if I've answered all of your questions.

    David,
    Since the data is stored in a table it can be retrieved and displayed if a page is setup to do so, yes?

    Sure, and there are some add-ons, like the third party created Directory Add-on that does just that. You can always access anything stored in a database with the right coding. :)

  5. What is the table called? Is there only 1 table for entries?

  6. Here is a list of the Gravity Forms tables:

    $wpdb->prefix . "rg_form"
    $wpdb->prefix . "rg_form_meta"
    $wpdb->prefix . "rg_form_view"
    $wpdb->prefix . "rg_lead"
    $wpdb->prefix . "rg_lead_detail"
    $wpdb->prefix . "rg_lead_detail_long"
    $wpdb->prefix . "rg_lead_meta"
    $wpdb->prefix . "rg_lead_notes"

    As you can see, there are 5 tables related to leads. You might want to use a tool like phpMyAdmin to take a look at how the data is stored so you know how to approach getting the data out.
