If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

try switch to the main blog where buddypress is installed, echo the profile fields then switch back to the current blog.

$bp_blog = 1; // the blog id of your buddypress install, often 1
echo bp_get_profile_field_data( 'field=Name');

if that doesn't work, maybe the user in question is not a member of your main blog. You might need to add all users in the network to the buddypress blog if they are not already.
