    Need help with Conditions (text based) on my form!

    Asked by rempe9925 on December 01, 2016 at 06:05 PM

    Hello ,


    I am trying to create a condition for a form  based on user selection. Here is what i want to do: 


    UNder the "project type" field section, if someone selects "End 2 End (FCBH-En-Q)", i want the "Fund" field to be automatically populated with the selection "End 2 End (FCBH-En-Q)". This is an accounting function that i need internally so my customers don't have to worry about this "Fund" field. 

    I included a screenshot of what i am talking about. 


    THank you!

    I checked your form https://form.jotform.com/63354079149159 and I see what was causing the Update/Calculate condition logic to fail.

    You were using a Dropdown list field as the destination field of the insert function.


    To make it work, you should use instead the regular Textbox field as the target field.

    And just update the conditional statement so that it points to the new Fund field (Textbox)


    Here is my test form https://form.jotform.com/63359068092967 that you can see it working.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you're still not able to make it work.
