Contact Form DB
Data collection after adding an extra field to the form (3 posts)

    I've been using my form for a while, and all the data was going into the database as it should. Then I added an extra field to my form. When I look at the database, every single entry has an answer filled out for the new field - but I was previously collecting entries without this field.

    So where are the previous entries? Were they deleted? Was an answer filled out for the blank field?

    Expected behavior is when you add a new field, you will see that field as blank for all older submissions.

    If you can give me information more information on what your form definition is and the field you added, I will try to investigate by setting up the same thing for myself.

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for you help. I looked in the database again and was working properly, with earlier entries being blank in that field. I think there was something wrong with my excel file, but when I tried again it was working.

    Thanks!
