    Hi billylevine2003gmailcom , I believe I understand the question you are asking about. There shouldn't be any limitation on the number of fields or account. This is mentioned in our Pricing Plans for each of our 4 Plans. See image below for details.

     

    Are you testing it on this form here https://www.jotform.com/31924329006955 or is it a different one? If so please let us know which one so we can take a look. When I looked on this form I could see that it has a few hidden fields but when viewing and testing it out in live mode I didn't see any issues nor were these fields seen. 

    Can you please explain more about this issue in detail and include screenshots if possible?

    The problem is related to the double quotes in your hidden fields. Inputs can not have " in value as this is conflicting with the html code.

    In order to fix this you will need to use " special characters instead of ".

    Please give it a try and let us know if you need any further assistance.

    There were many fields with double quotation marks, so each double quotation mark should be replaced with:

    "

    Even single double quotation mark can cause the problems due to the nature of the html code.

    If we need to check some form, just let us know. Thank you.

    You can use single and double quotes in questions (labels). Also, the single quotes should be fine in values.

    But you will need to avoid using double quotes as values, " can be used instead.

    Thank you.
