    Hi

    I'm brand new to JotForm.

    I have created a table with multiple tabs where the first tab serves as the transactional record tab and the other tabs provide data selection for some columns on the first tab via the connections feature.

    However, what I do not understand is how I can connect any of these columns to elements on a form in Form Builder. I expected to see the columns available for selection, in addition to the standard form elements.

    Can you assist?

    Thanks

    Garry

    I'm not sure I understood your requirements correctly.

    I have checked your form and I can't seem to find any fields.

    You may try using the input table if you want to create a table in your form.

    Kindly share more information on how you would like your form to work?

    Looking forward for your response.

    Hi Richie

    Thanks for your reply. I guess I didn't explain myself very well. What I want to do is map the columns from this table

    1603882317_5f994d4de0244_Image 28-10-20

    from a form built with Form Builder. So, rather than add generic elements to the form, I want to add (for example) an element that will map to the Intensity column in the table I have created. I want to do this for all of the columns on the Episodes tab.

    In other words, I want to access the form through the mobile app, and the form will act as a GUI for data collection into the table I have created.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to create an element out of your tables to your form.

    You can only send data through the form to tables.

    Hope this information helps.
