    Yes, if you delete a field you will also delete the data associated to that; however, if you would like to have a back up of the data, you could download your submissions before to delete the desired field, here is a guide that will help you: https://www.jotform.com/help/73-How-to-Download-Form-Submissions-as-Excel-CSV-PDF
