    Hello,

    I'm wondering if there is a way to link data from different forms.  Can 1 form keep a running total of data from anther form, like totaling hours for a week on one form based on hours inputted in another form?

    No its not possible to update a form in that way. You would need to do some server side programming to keep a tally.

    First you would need to send your submission data via a POST request to your server side script. Then it could parse the total hours and add it to a running total.
