    I'm trying to figure out how we can use our form (we use it as a advertising sales order form) so we can pull up  a previously submitted order and change the run dates and have the unique ID number automatically update to a new number.


    Not sure I'm explaining this to make sense to you, but maybe we can talk through it.

    Unfortunately, we do not have a phone support. The best way to reach us is through this Support Forum or via email at support@jotform.com.

    Please take note that editing a submission will not create a new submission.

    We do have an app called Import Data. The idea is that you export that specific submission in Excel file to download the data. After that, you can change the headers of the spreadsheet file to match the headers provided by the app. Please check this guide: Import-App-Easily-Import-Your-Excel-or-CSV-Data-into-JotForm.

    You may also prepopulate the fields using the Field Prepopulator app. Here's the link: http://prepopulate.jotform.io/.

    Lastly, we have a widget called Spreadsheet to Form. Here's a guide: How-to-Use-the-Spreadsheet-to-Form-Widget.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
