Can I delete a field and not have issues with data exportation? I did not know if it would continue to leave that field blank now that it is no longer a question and not shift data over a column upon exporting. I hope question makes sense. Thanks.

If you delete the question, it will not create a problem with data sent after the deletion, however old data will still contain the deleted information effectively shifting everything over 1 column slot.

The best way to handle this is to copy the form in the control panel, delete the question, and then update with site with the newly created (copied) form. This will retain the old form data intact, and start recording new data with the updated form.
