I need to add a custom field to the checkout process. I have created a text field on the front-end where a user can enter their alternate address.
The issue is that how can I capture this information in both backend & user account?

I would suggest to use a ready-made tool in order to add and collect all the data inserted in the custom fields of the checkout page.
Try this extension by FME: http://www.fmeextensions.com/magento-additional-checkout-attributes-fields.html

Using this extension, you can add multiple fields to the checkout page and include them in shipping PDFs.

Hello Simon,
thank you for your suggestion. But we're trying not to use commercial extensions for our themes.

Though you are trying not to use commercial extensions, sometimes that might be justified. Moreover, users can install such extensions themselves on any theme.
You can look at this extension for adding custom fields https://amasty.com/order-attributes.html
However, if this is just a one-time request and only 1 field is needed, it can be added programmatically.

I need to add a custom field to the checkout process. I have created a text field on the front-end where a user can enter their alternate address.
The issue is that how can I capture this information in both backend & user account?
