    I am using calculation values for an single choice field.

    It is working well!

    But I also would like to copy the choosen option into an text field! As long  as I am not using values it is working. If I use them not anymore!

    Is there a way to get the values for calculation and the text of the option?

    Unfortunately, when using calculation values, your options are read as values assigned. But, if you need to use both the original value and calculation, I can suggest creating additional field to convert it back. You can hide it afterwards. 

    The idea is following:

    1. Create a Short Text Entry field before your Text field.

    2. Add 2 conditional statements to insert text into Short Text Entry field based on user's answer:



    3. Pre populate Short Text Entry field to the Text field with it's unique name:



    Hope this helps! But, just let us know if you need further assistance.
