    How to assign a value on a drop-down field when an option is selected in another drop-down?

    Asked by Andreacp on January 18, 2017 at 04:07 PM

    I have a data matrix with brands and their intern codes, what we want is to auto select the intern codes when the user selects the brand in the drop down.

    Upon inspection, here is how to achieve what you requested:

    1. We set the calculation values of the brands dropdown as the internal codes, as shown here:

    2. We set a condition so that if the brands dropdown is filled, we copy its calculation value into the internal code dropdown:

    I created a corrected form in case you would like to just clone it and work with it: https://form.jotform.com/70177382859973

    If you need further assistance please let us know. We will be happy to help. Thank you.
