Name of the field is "Data". I am sending NBIoT messages to server. With Wireshark taking log from server UDP port and instead of "Message 0" I get "4d6573736167652030"

And which dissector is that in, I'm looking for the full field name, e.g.

I can not add picture. "60 points required to upload files". Can I send picture to some email address?

If you select the field in the packet details pane, then the field name is shown in the status bar at the bottom in parentheses, see this example where I've selected the "Data" field and the actual field name is outlined in red.

You need to set the Data dissector preference for "Show data as text" (Edit -> Preferences -> Protocols -> Data) and then use the field data.text as your column.
