    Not all OPTIONS of the Dropdown field are being copied via Condition

    Asked by amitinddr on January 24, 2017 at 04:22 AM
    But now I have a completely strange problem. I am trying to have 2 dropdowns. I have put same options in both the dropdowns. The second one is hidden has values associated with each option. I have applied calculation condition to update text of dropdown 2 based on text selected in dropdown 1. This condition works absolutely fine. The problem is that it doesn't work for below 4 options. I have tried it on a completely new form as well but the problem persists. Here is a sample form that I created - https://form.jotform.me/41222121178442

    Hmm, you're correct - Not all the OPTIONS are being copied to the 2nd Dropdown menu. It only works for the last 2:

    Design - 901

    Multi design - 902

    I double checked your OPTIONS for both dropdowns and found out some extra spaces on the first 4 entries. These OPTIONS might have been copied and pasted into the dropdown and included a tab, whitespace, etc., that might have caused the problem. I changed them to only show single spaces in between and it started to work as intended.


    Margarita Mixer  - 801 (has an extra space)

    Daiquiri Mixer  - 802 (has an extra space)

    Fruit Flavored Mixer  - 803 (has an extra space)

    Energy Drink  - 804 (has an extra space)

    Design - 901

    Multi design - 902


    Margarita Mixer - 801 (removed extra space)

    Daiquiri Mixer - 802 (removed extra space)

    Fruit Flavored Mixer - 803 (removed extra space)

    Energy Drink - 804 (removed extra space)

    Design - 901

    Multi design - 902
