    If I hide a field, does this action have an effect on the results for this field?

    If I hide a form field will this process affect results already received in this field?

    If you hide a field on your form, it will not show up on your live form. The users will not see it and they cannot fill out that field. Hidden fields can still process like calculation or conditions you have set to them.

    However, if I misunderstood your question, please give us more details so that we can better assist you.

    Do get us back if you need further assistance.
