I am using an Update Request that is emailed out to a user. 

When the user clicks the button VIEW REQUEST another dialogue box appears with the fields (columns) I chose to show. One of the fields, I want the user to be able to enter data to a free from text field. The column where I want the input data stored is set as a Text/Number column. My problem is the Request shows the column title but does not include a free form text field where I want the user to enter data. 

Can someone assist me in a solution for this ? Thank you.
