    I am working on getting the save and continue feature  to work for my form and I wanted to also include the passing date from one from to another.  however I think I have confused myself.  

    In form 1 (my registration form) i have the following information: 

    Affilition
    Company Name
    Name of Main Contact
    Email
    Phone
    Division

    I want this information to move to the second form (entry submission form) which on the first page is the same exact fields.  So in my URL to link the two forms for the save and continue, what do I put?  I have myself very confused on what order to put fields.

    You need to strip the Name field first. So it would be 

    nameOf[first]={nameOf:first}&nameOf[last]={nameOf:last}

    Then for the phone field it would be:

    phoneNumber[area]={phoneNumber:area}&phoneNumber[phone]={phoneNumber:phone}
