    Can I prepopulate the drop down options from another form via URL?

    Asked by odtechgrp on December 10, 2012 at 05:47 PM

    Form 1 has text boxes for each of the speakers that are involved. I would like to take the info entered from those text boxes and make them the drop down options for a question in Form 2. Possible?

    So you mean to say textbox to dropdown, like this:

    Form 1 TextBox ---> Form 2 Dropdown ?

    This might be possible but you had to make it sure that values from textbox are exactly matched on dropdown's predefined values. They don't work if both values aren't matched correctly.
