    when I get an address, the results come in a weird format where the street name is above the house number, in such a way that I cannot copy and paste and paste into an app, like GPS app etc.  How can I change this?

    Hello,

    Could you let us know if you are referring to the form https://www.jotform.com/193503874187063?

    If yes, I can see that you are referring to the Autocompleted address widget in the form:

    The form entry field shows House number before the Street name, but however, the submission on your form shows Street name before the House number.

    Example:

    I believe you want this position to be switched when you receive the submission. Is that correct?

    Yes, that’s correct. Or to just generate the address only with no fields
    needed.

    Thanks for the update. Please note that in this widget, the first input field pulls in the address and automatically fills in the address fields on the widget. Therefore all fields on this widget would be needed to get the address.

    Now regarding the position of the House number and Street name, unfortunately, changing widget's behavior is not an easy process, since we are using Google API to show the address.

    I would suggest you to use the normal Address field to set up fields according to your requirement. In the normal address field, add the Placeholder as per your need to each field.

    It will not work as Autocompleted Address widget, but, it will help you to set up the data according to your needs.
