    I need to know how to create an auto population based on a selection from a dropdown list.  For example if the drop down list question is "Please Select Your Office" and the user selects "19th Street" (which is what we refer to the office internally), I want on either the back end or user facing end to auto-populate the 19th Street office address as 12345 S 19th Street, Waco, TX 76710.  Similar to the calculation values options.

    You never mentioned which form you're currently working on so I'll just assume it's this one https://www.jotform.com/73455412239153 - It's the only one that has an "Office Location" dropdown field.

    I understand what you're trying to do but it wasn't clear where the data will be populated to. Is it going to be passed/populated to an address field, a textbox field, will it be within the same form, or another form, and so on.

    If it's for an ADDRESS field, I'm afraid this isn't possible. The address field will only accept data from another address field (the format has to be the same).

    If it's going to be populated to a TEXTBOX though, this can be achieved using conditions. To give an idea how this might work using CONDITIONS, here's a stripped down clone of your form https://www.jotform.com/73476285843973

    The condition that was used for that is:

    IF Office Location IS FILLED THEN COPY its value to another field (in this case, the Textbox field below it)
