How can I change a question based on a previous answer?

    I'm wanting to change the wording of a question that will get the same answer regardless of how it's worded.

    The reason is that people are coming to the form for different reasons. 


    Ex. A list of all our products, and a specific product.

    I'm wanting to ask about the price of the product/s.

    But "As you know {productType} is $XXXX" Doesn't really work because one result is

    "As you know Tinkerbot is $5,000" which makes sense grammatically.


    But... "As you know this list of over 5000 new toys is $20,000" might make sense in this context, but doesn't in my actual one.



    So I'm wanting the same question to be dynamic, where one answer shows "As you know Tinkerbot is $5,000".

    And the other is "As you know, this list of new toys, from Canada, are going for $20,000 and under."


    But the same technical question and same answers ("Is this in the price range you're looking for?" → "Yes", "No")


    How do I do this? Is it possible?

    I made a demo form, can you please check if that meets your requirements?

    Here's the link: https://form.jotform.com/2006380272760501583375307unique na,e.png
    You can pull values in other fields using the unique name of the field.

    Please give it a try and let us know how it goes.

    No, this completely ignored my question.  I'm not just wanting to put the previous answer into the question.

    We do not have a great form piping feature, but it is achievable using our existing feature. One example of that is the form given to you by my colleague.

    If that doesn't answer your question, we would need a few more details about it. Are you perhaps looking to pass the answer PLUS the amount from another field or on that field? My colleague is just passing the value selected from the Single Choice field. If there is a need to copy a price, that is also possible.

    Thank you and we look forward to your reply.
