    Hi again,

    The possible workaround to pass the submission counter to Paypal transaction as reference, are as follows, please see the instructions below:

    1. Create a text field.


    2. Set the condition in that field, that will copy the Submission Counter value.

    3. Go to the Paypal wizard and click the Additional Settings.

    4. Look for the Fetch Data from the Text field and make sure that the name of the text field is selected.
