Help Applicant Identification number in online part of ECFMG application

Hi guys,
I am done with step 1 and I am now applying for step 2. In the online part of the application, under item 5 other examination history and applicant number, they asked

Have you ever submitted an application to the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) for a Part or Step examination?

As I already submitted step 1 application should I answer yes?

If so they are also asking applicant number. Is it the ECFMG Id number? Please answer

No.. U need not fill that.. NBME conducts its own exam.. We are applying thru ECFMG.. So just say no or leave the field blank

Help Applicant Identification Number

It is obvious that we cannot leave the field blank. And saying NO is a little scary coz it might account for irregular behavior. Are you absolutely sure Bassatom that I can confidently opt NO? Plz confirm..
