Same data fields on different data cards

Hello,
Can someone please clarify this for me?
I am creating a new data card but would like to use the same data fields; the field name may be the same but the data will be different, will this confuse Adept?  For example, I want to use the existing field name (C_SUB_N0) - Submittal that comes from a vendor, but I also want to use this field for Submittal that comes from internal employees.

    Sorry not to have responded before.  This is fine - you can have the same fields on different data cards.

    It should be fine to reuse the same Adept field across different documents.  As long as you understand the type/length of data that could be extracted across all document types and your field can accept everything for which it might be populated.

    Another thing to consider is to when users use this field for searches. If they are expecting one type of data for the field and receive both types, it could be confusing.
