Does data from Hidden Fields get included in the downloaded data?

I'm wondering if I use a hidden field type, will that data show up in my downloaded data even though it doesn't show up in the form?  For example, for each of my groups, I would like to calculate a date and location field based on data entered earlier in the form to minimize data clean up when I download the data.  I would like to make those 'hidden' fields so it doesn't change the form appearance.  Does anyone know if I make those fields hidden, will that data be downloaded with each group?

Hi Karen,

Can you please share your xlsx file you used to create the survey, so we can take a closer look and how it is configured?

Thanks Phil,

This one has had me going in circles, but I finally figured out my problem was as simple as re-sharing, not re-publishing.  Cheers!
