    Hi I have created a list of addresses into a auto-complete text field. also, i have set up another text field to fill in a unique number when a certain address is selected, such criteria is set up in the form condition. however, because this would be a frequently used function which will be used in other forms as well, it would be a nightmare to re-write the condition in each and  every form (I have over 150 conditions to match, later on will be more), hence I am wondering if I can export the conditions to a file to be used in another form or would you recommend other practices to achieve the same goal? thanks

    Hi there,

    I am afraid such feature as exporting conditions from a form and applying to other forms will be difficult to implement because the name of the controls from one form to another will be different and mapping will also consume time on your part. What I would suggest, if the forms you will be creating are almost similar and they need similar conditions, is to clone your existing form with conditions. From that point, the conditions will be copied as well to the cloned form and you can do the necessary adjustments to the new form.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
