    Hi Jotform Team,

    I would like to enquire if details can be copied or duplicated into like fields where someone has completed the details earlier in the same form?

    Reason for asking is that in my form (Notice of Intended Marriage Details) a couple will complete the form which is effectively divided into two. One half is completed by one Party and then the second half which contains the same questions is completed by the the Other Party.

    I was trying to have the ability particularly with the questions on address where if the couple are living together the address can be copied from the field earlier in the form. I don't know if this may be done by a question or check box that could say something like;

    Address same as Other Party, if checked the address field would then populate with the same address as entered earlier in the form?

    I do currently use the Autocomplete Address widget on this form.

    Many thanks for any assistance,

    Adrian.

    Hi,

    Thank you, I read the article and fount the answer through a link in the article https://www.jotform.com/help/286-how-to-pass-field-value-to-another-field

    The only issue I encountered was that it would not work using the Autocomplete Address widget copying the field details from one to the other Autocomplete Address widget?

    I used a check box as a trigger to copy the address field and when I changed the address field back to a standard Jotform address field I did achieve what I was seeking.

    Thanks again,

    Adrian.

    Hi Adrian,

    You can populate the AutoComplete Address widget as well using URL parameters. Here is how you can do it.
