My OS is win 7 Prof 64 bit and I created a Google Forms to capture a simple survey.  While this worked, but is there a way of capturing the email address of the person who completed the survey.  Like having a field on the Form that will capture the email address of the person who completed the survey.  If Yes this can be done, can the experts give me the steps on how to achieve this.  Thank u.

WHat do you mean capture?

Can you add a field and require the user to enter an email address?

In response to mimcc, yes, can I put a field, and it will automatically capture the User's email address without him or her entering it physically, because if asked to do so, many will just shy away.  Thank u.

in response to mlmcc, I am the email coordinator for my Seniors Club of my Temple.  and now we are trying to organize an AARP Driving Course and we not only want to know the numbers but the persons who signed up, because AARP want a firm commitment before they come.  And knowing Senior's IT knowledge thus if I am able to know the person's email I will know the other contact details from my Access database.  
I do not spam and do not have the time for it, nor am I running any internet marketing.
thank u.

There is no way of capturing the user's email address without their permission.
 
Do you require your users to log in to see your form?  Do they use their email address?  As long as you state the information you are collecting and why (usually via a Privacy Policy - see an attorney), then it shouldn't be an issue.
