    How can I achieve a user editable series of drop downs that  are linked (Org Name, Contacts, Address, Emails etc) where when user picks an organisation name - all the associated fields for that Organisation - will auto populate inth the corresponding fields in the form?

    This is AN INTERNAL ORDER PROCESSING FORM where we have all our organisation and contact details in a csv ready to import.- the csv has existing - previous ORgs and contact details but in the form our INTERNAL ORDER PROCESSING TEAM on the phone need to also be able to add in NEW nentries for NEW clients so 'ad another' is important.

    Can this be done?

    What I could think of is for you to create a show/hide conditional logic on your form's fields. Meaning, you have a 1st level dropdown menu, then based on that, you have a field or set of fields that shall appear which is related to the answer to the first. 

    You can check out this guide to know how to make it happen: https://www.jotform.com/help/316-How-to-Show-or-Hide-Fields-Base-on-User-s-Answer

    Also, just in case I am misunderstanding the idea, can you share with us the form and the fields in it that you wish to make use of so we can have a better grasp on what how your form should function?

    Thanks.
