    Hi Jim,

    I'm assuming that when you said "info", you meant "submissoins". If it is, then no, there is no way to move them. Submissions are forever attached to a form and cannot be transferred to another. The best solution I can give you is to edit your old form so it looks like your new form and the old database/info/submissions will be kept. Please be aware though, that deleting fields in your old form will result to deletion of data submitted into that field.

    For example, you deleted the "First Name"  field in the old form, if you look at your submissions page the information submitted for "First Name" will also be deleted. Take extra caution.

    Hope this information is useful to you. Send us a feedback if you have other questions.
