    For Step 2 on this form https://form.jotform.com/92334738867168  when fill in the entry for Passenger 1's starting location, it doesn't get applied into the field I've selected the copied entry to go into.

    Your condition needs to be changed since it's currently calculating numeric values instead of simply concatenating text values.

    It should then look like this.

    Once changed, that should work. However, may I suggest to use Form Calculation widget instead. It does the same job but cleaner and easier.

    On my test form, I've fixed the condition to fill out Starting Location field. And I also added a Starting Location 2 (form calculation) field to demonstrate the outcome.

    I only wanted to fill in the answer once for field #8 (Passenger 1's starting location) so the answer can automatically apply to the fields I've selected. I see you had to fill in the starting location multiple times that's what I wanted to avoid having to do. When I applied the fields into the condition box exactly as demonstrated it still didn't copy in the fields I've selected in the conditions box. I also tried to use the form calculation widget but I wasn't sure where on the form I should place it.

    I was able to replicate the issue. Let me test this in my Demo Form and get back to you.

    Thanks.

    Apologies, but based on your previous response, it seems that we might have a misunderstanding.

    Please note that the condition you have initially set tells the system to put the values from Passenger 1's Location / Current Location / Starting Location to Starting Location.

    Meanwhile, as what I understand on your last note, what you want is if Passenger 1 Starting Location is filled, then the value within it should be duplicated to those 3 fields:

    Passenger 1's Location

    Current Location

    Starting Location

    If this is what you want, I would suggest you use Form Calculation widget for those 3 fields, then simply configure it to have the value of Passenger 1 Starting Location.

    However, please note that the user needs to manually enter / select location in Passenger 1 Starting Location field so that the calculation will be triggered.
