Multiple and similar checkbox fields - useful export

  1. I have a form with some multiple and similar fields - set up as checkboxes. For example:
    Person1: M and/or F
    Person2: M and/or F
    Person3: M and/or F

    The exporting is going to be important for this form - but when I export, the fields aren't named very friendly... I just have numerous fields named M and F.

    I played around with the values for these fields (setting them as Person1-M and Person1-F, but I the heading for the field is still labelled M (or F) with the value labelled Person1-M/F.

    Ideally, I would like the field name to be Person1-M, with the value of M - which I think I could do if I changed the field itself... but I would like the form to display just M or F.

    Any thoughts on how this could be accomplished?

  2. If you use radio buttons instead of checkboxes, the column heading will be your field label, and the values in each row will be the "Male" or "Female" value. When you use checkboxes, that does not happen. I was wondering what circumstance would allow Male and/or Female where you require checkboxes instead of radio buttons. If you can use radio buttons instead, you won't have the problem. If you need to use checkboxes, we'll have to come up with something else for you if possible.
