I currently have a live form. I want to change some of the now invalid data fields. Will I lose the previous data field when I go to export my collected data from the message center for that form or will this field remain but stop collecting data?

Removing or adding questions will likely shift over all of the current data that is in the database. I would not recommend changing a form that has already collected a large amount of data. Instead, I would:

1. Use the 'Copy' form function to duplicate the form
2. Make needed changes to the copied form
3. Update the form code on your site with the newly created form

This will make it so new form submissions will be cataloged using a new form in the Message Center.
