    Hi. I am looking for a way to auto fill one field based on what is filled in another field. The reason is that i want to export the form to an excel/csv-file and import it in the accounting-software.

     

    I have a set of radiobuttons that reads like this:

     

    - 1 week: 4900kr

    - 2 weeks: 5900kr

    - 3 weeks: 7900kr

    etc.

     

    For the accounting software i need to have one field that is automatically filled depending on the choice made above (and not visible to the user of the form) that only reads:

     

    4900

    5900

    7900

    etc.

     

    Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    I think you can do this using the the ff: techniques

    1. Add a hidden box field(found in power tools) to the form.

    2. Prepopulating-the-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    OR

    You will use the form's source code . This will allow you to add custom javascript code to be able to pre-populate the output field base on the selected radio option value.

    I'll try come up with the test form. I'll update you here.

    Thanks.

    I found a way to solve it without the one you suggested. I added one radiobutton-field for each option in the first radiobutton field, and set the only option available in each radiobutton-field as selected. Then i added conditions that links each option to corresponding radiobutton-field, and set all id's for the new radiobutton-fields to {display:none;}. Like this:

     

    First radiobutton-field:

    - 1 week: 4900kr

    - 2 weeks: 5900kr

    - 3 weeks: 7900kr

    etc.

     

    Radiobutton-field (conditioned to show only when option "1 week: 4900kr" is selected)

    - 4900 (selected)

     

    Radiobutton-field (conditioned to show only when option "2 weeks: 5900kr" is selected)

    - 5900 (selected)

     

    Radiobutton-field (conditioned to show only when option "3 week: 7900kr" is selected)

    - 7900 (selected)

     

    etc.
