Hi guys.
I'm new to this so excuse my ignorance :)

Is it possible to explicitly say what my table name should be in the database before actually creating it? The same question goes for column names :)

For instance if I have a question 'What is you name?' I want to be able to have a column 'Name' in my table where the answer is stored.
Thanks in advance!

why would you need something like that in the database? LS needs to create it's own tables automatically.

However, the results output usually has headers like you require. I assume it is not important to have the columns of the mysql database name, but the output in excel or csv, right?

Thanks for the response.

It's mostly for aesthetics.

With the example I gave before the answers are stored in a column called something like 'EXK3X2'.

I am not interested in those columns LS generates by default. Only those that are generated specifically from my questions.
