    I have a form which is currently being used in one of my marketing campaigns and it already has numerous entries.  However, I noticed that I forgot to add a question (ie:  What is your current business Website URL?).

    Question - if I edit the form and add that question - how will it affect the underlying database and related reports?

    Will it cause a problem of any kind?

    Thanks for your help,

    Don

    If you are deleting a field from the form, the associated data for the field will also be deleted. Since you are adding a new field to the form, it should be fine and there shouldn't be any issue. However, the field can be filled only by the new submissions. If you are already having some submissions for the form and wanted to have the newly added field to be filled for the existing submissions, you may edit the submissions and resubmit the form.

    Hope this information helps!
