    Hi,

    The email variable for the 2nd question is incorrect it should have been
    {2Archibald5}

    To include the result of a field in the notification email please do the following:

    1. Open your form in JotForm
    2. Click on Setup and Embed
    3. Choose 'Email Alerts' then 'Notification Email'
    4. In the Compose Email window the right section shows a list of the form fields.

    Thanks, Mliz. I will try this. I don't need to re-embed the code into my website do I?

    Hello,

    Nope, you don't have to edit your form.  Just edit the email content in the notification settings and you're good to go.

    Hope this helps.
