GV Excel-Export

Make realy comfortable, complete export to normal Excel files from GravityView.

GravityView (whatever my attitude towards him) popular tool. But the built-in Export allows to generate only CSV files. For many, this is inconvenient and insufficient, because tedious post-processing of such files is required. The presence of the Cyrillic alphabet in the name of the fields can greatly spoil the mood and desire to do something.

This Plugin is designed to solve this problem.
