Hard time with Excel

I have just spend hours trying to debug my ODK. I have html in some label fields and Excel is messing around with it by changing one double quotation mark into two double quotation marks.

Beside that Excel is a horrible piece of software, it is slow, bloated, lacks any ergonomy, has a very bad search function, does not highlight the syntax of the the logic used in ODK, it spins its wait wheel forever if one uses conditional formatting and it is closed source, as opposed to ODK.

Any chances there will be a ODT to xform converter?

Hi @RafaelKluender,
