    If this form will be on a site. Then the best thing to do would be to use additional code by way  of Javascript or members only access on a php page, to first have access to the form.

    If you will be providing the actual Form URL and you want this function to work directly form the form. You can achieve this using conditional formatting. 

    By making a rule in which if the user type an specific code then form allows you to enter the next phase:

    Type "hello" or "open" as the passphrase:

    Conditional Rule:

    Example form: http://form.jotform.co/form/33477725135862

    Very important note aboe this process, the codes can be seen by anyone that opens the source code of the form. I would suggest to not use this method, unless it is a very casual matter, and not for any sensitive information or critically private scenarios.

    Hi!

    I can do it by setting 200 conditions for the code field.

    Is this possible and if so, is there an easy way to set up 200 conditions?

    As my colleague stated, there is not guarantee that this method will work exactly as you need, the possibility this fails exists.

    However, if decide to use it what you can do is to create all the 200 rules of the codes in one single condition so that you do not have to create 200 separate conditions. If you create multiple conditions, it may produce conflict among the conditions and will not work.

    Please inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks
