    I am wondering if it is possible to make it so that certain fields in one of my forms can be set to not accept an answer with a special character in it. Also, can I cap the answer by a certain number of characters all together?

    I am using API integrations and when the data transfers to Quickbooks, if the client has a special character in the form it stops the entire process. The same thing happens if their response is too long.


    Please advise.

    Please check this demo form: https://form.jotform.com/80948734055969

    Is that what you're trying to achieve? If you put "a" or "c" the Submit button will disappear. If yes, you can use the Show/Hide conditions and if the field contains a specific letter or character the Submit button will be hidden.

    Here's the result:
