    After file upload, have file name auto fill fields on form

    Asked by ctphoto on January 25, 2013 at 10:48 AM

    I have a form for uploading files only. It will then go to another form page (like it is the first thank you page) to have my client fill out the form with instructions. Is there anyway to have the file names they just uploaded populate certain fields in my second form?

    Hi,

    Sorry to say but it is not possible with file names. You can only prepopulate fields from one form to another using its entered data not with file names.

    Thanks!

    I have tried making some test but I was failed. Same thing, can't get the file name value from an upload field so therefore it is not possible.

    Sorry about that.
