    Hi,

    I created a matrix grid with 5 (rows) item and 6 (columns) items. The last columns I named "other". The condition I like to create is something like this. When you select a specific row and the last column "other" I like to display a specific Text Area I created to associate with that selection in this grid. The reason I created the grid is that the person may have multiple selection in the grid with special instructions associated with the row selection.

    see screenshot ...

    thanks

    steve

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, that is not possible with Matrix Field. There is no way you can select an individual option in Matrix Field to use in any logic of the form.

    The workaround that I could suggest is using Radio button instead. Please take a look at this clone form: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/32825938579977

    Thank you!

    We do not have any option that can auto-generate the fields or connect with the database to fetch these fields. However, you can update the form through the editor at any time.

    If you do not want to have very long form, you can try to use our Form Collapse tools.

    Thank you.
