Field Name

The Field Name field is the actual field that will be created in the MySQL table to store the answers to this question. As this is a MySQL field, you cannot use spaces or special characters such as backslash (\), asterix (*) etc. You can use any alphanumeric characters and underscores. To avoid problems with exporting to excel, it is best to start and finish your field with an alphabetic character.
