    Hello cbulaong,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Can you please explain your question a bit more in detail and we will surely help you.

    Do you mean to say that you want to edit your previous submissions? The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/325-How-to-Edit-Submissions-Made-on-Your-Forms 

    If you meant to ask that you will be able to edit submissions even after adding a new form field - yes you will be able to edit your previous submissions even after adding a new form field. 

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!

    I was just making sure that the new field would appear on the old
    submissions. I believe the answer is yes, so I'm going to go ahead and do
    it. I'm already "versed" at editing a submission! thx
