Salesforce.com created several custom fields for our Web to Lead implementation. The new fields autogenerated by Salesforce.com begin with numbers, for example 00N80000002tVKX. Our website uses PHP for the data entry form and another php page to verify the data and post it to Salesforce. PHP does not allow a variable to begin with a number. Is there a technique or method that I can use to define a PHP variable like $cust_field1 and then when the data is posted to Salesforce.com use the custom field 00N80000002tVKX name created by salesforce?
I use Java Script to post the data to Salesforce.com.
