    When I spent hours developing my forms, I included Calculation values for the Brokerage Selection of the form.


    If someone selects a Amherst for example then the calculation values of:



    Amherst Madison Partners 410 E State St Eagle Idaho 83616 208-450-3000 www.amherstmadisonpartners.com www.facebook.com/AmherstMadisonPartners AMHERST_MADISON_PARTNERS_BOISE NO NO 0d0d0d 323232 GillSans GillSans-Bold Lato Lato sans-serif; font-weight: bold; sans-serif; font-weight: normal; spare spare NO IMLS IMLS

    are included as tab delimited. Now this doesnt work all I get is

    when it should be:

    ....Please provide a workaround ASAP

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm afraid that the calculation values option is meant to be used with numbers, in calculations. So such text wouldn't work.

    The workaround is to use conditions, so when the appropriate selection is selected in your drop-down a text should be inserted to target field.

    But, also, you should use long text entry instead of short text entry:

    So the text you plan to input would fit:

    You can test it here: https://form.jotform.com/80371609880966 (I did it for first three options).

    Let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thank you!
