Excel and csv downloads

Hi
Firstly - when preparing species/records lists for public consumption the ability to add a Common Name column in excel and csv downloads would be extremely useful, if that does do not exist and/or I just cannot find it.
Secondly - the ability to not only add BUT remove record attribute columns in excel and csv downloads would be useful and more time efficient, when the standard output has 35+ columns and I only wish to use say 5. I note that the view and download functions operate on different fixed column criteria.
Cheers
Bob

Bob,

the only way I know to add common names is via a grouped query eg. https://database.bsbi.org/search.php#re ... 986e55100a. This lists Carex spp by scientific and common name, counting number of hectads, in vc11, post 1999.

Andy.

Thanks Andy - after a short experiment that works well for monad species lists - will look into that further
Cheers
