Does the Choices tab have an alias column?

On my Choices tab I need to have the labels a concatenation of two fields, the route name and routeID as this is what the user needs to see on the pulldown menu of the entry form. The name column consists of the routeID, which is what I would like submitted, not the label, as it is the unique ID. This is not usually the case however, since most of my values in the choices tab are better reflected in labels column as spaces are allowed. I got around this limitation on the survey tab by using the alias column. Do we have anything like that for the Choices tab?

 

Values in the master database for sky conditions are in the labels column

list_namenamelabel
endskyClearClear
endskyFoggyFoggy
endskyPartCloudy

Part Cloudy

 

Values in the master database are in the name column

RouteID33 - Wells to Jackpot
RouteID44 - Wells to Spruce Mountain

 

Do I have any control as to which column of data gets submitted or do I have to write python scripts to format my data after submission prior to importing into master database?
