Send submission to MySQL database using PHP: any idea how I could get the field name?

    I'm in the process of connecting a form made with jotform to my SQL database
    The issue I'm having is that the section that is receiving the mp3/wav file uploads on jotform has no visible field name, and so I can't pass the required file to my database (through $_POST).
    Any idea how I could get the field name? I've searched in the advanced area and can't seem to find any option to grab the field name.
    Below is a picture that can help explain the problem.

    Thank you for the attention :)

    Finally, do a real submission in your form in order to see the PHP code, example:
