    Passing data from one form to the next very well with text, dates and values.  How do you do it for Single Choice, Multiple Choice and Input Tables? If you could point me in the right direction and provide an example of the string for each that would be much appreciated.

    I have created two forms which includes a single choice and multiple choice element. 

    Form 1 : https://www.jotform.com/build/90782767200964

    Form 2 : https://www.jotform.com/build/90782696336975

    In order to pass data from Form 1 to Form 2, you need to follow these steps;

    1 - Copy your Form 2 link and add ? mark to the end of this link. 

    2 - You can pass data from single choice element by the name of single choice field (radioButton5) which will be equal to data acquired from Form 1 single choice field (radioButton). Therefore, your link should include something like this ;

    radioButton5={radioButton}

    3 - To pass data from multiple choice field to another form, you need to find the field name of multiple choice element in Form 2, which will be equal to the data drawn from Form 1 multiple choice field (checkBox). Since my form has three different choices, I have indexes "0","1", and "2". Moreover, don't forget to separate them with comma. 

    Overall, my link should look like something like this in order to pass data (single and multiple choice) from Form 1 to Form 2; 

    http://form.jotform.com/90782696336975?radioButton5={radioButton}&checkBox6={checkBox:0},{checkBox:1},{checkBox:2}


    When I add this link to my thank you page, user will be directed to Form 2 with data from Form 1.


    We will get back to you about passing data from input tables.

    I have created two input tables, two 3x3 table for Form 1 and 2. You need to find the field name of input tables first. To do that, you need to go "Properties", click on Advanced and you can field name on the bottom. You should do the same for both forms.

    The field name of input table from Form 2 is typeB, and field name from Form 1 is typeA. The first row of input table for Form 2 will be equal to the data drawn from Form 1, which can be shown by typeB[0]={typeA:0}. Since I have 3 rows, my indexes are "0","1", and "2". Overall, the link you will be posting to your Form 1 thank you page should look like something like this ;
