    Is It Possible for a Full Name Field to Have Just One Text Box Instead of Two?

    Thanks for asking. You could just use a regular text box field for that:

    Now, if you want to ensure that two separate names (first and last) are entered, you may have to resort to embedding the form's full source into a webpage and adding a short script to check for the space. I could provide such a script if necessary.

    If you would like further help with this, please inform us.

    That is what I had done, Abajan. But I was not sure it would translate as a name in my submissions. Now I am confident to use the "text" field as my "name" field. Thank you.
