I'm having an issue exporting all submissions to Excel in the CMS.

An error occurs, saying: "Request URI Too Large".

I look at the URL it's going to and it is passing through the content of the page including form questions as GET variables, making the URL string very long.

Does anyone know how i fix this? I've looked into the code and can see it's something to do with GridField.js, but I can't see what to edit.

Any help would be much appreciated.

This is a bug in 3.0. You'll need to use the latest 3.1 beta release along with the latest userforms beta release.
