    Hi Paul,

    You can achieve this using injected CSS code into the form.

    Here is a sample form where I hide the Submit button and retain only the Reset button.

    http://form.jotform.me/form/40086487302453?

    In my sample form I added a Submit button on a cloned version of your form http://www.jotform.com/33612075408955  and the CSS codes I used is like this

    #input_45{display: none;}

    Though I am curious on how you will be able to collect the answers to your form, if it does not have the submit button?

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.

    Hi
    The form isn't being used for submissions but as a method of checking some information prior to completing the full form
    The idea of this is to cut down on in viable submissions and save us processing time
    Sent via mobile, so please excuse any typos
    Kind regards

    Hi

    Brilliant it worked first time.

    Is it possible to change the text in the button from Clear Form to Start Again?

    Also is it possible to change the message that appears when the button is clicked?  Currently it says

    "The page at form.jotformpro.com say:

    Are you sure you want to clear the form" then OK or Cancel

    All I'd like it to say is "Click OK to Start again" and nothing else if possible

    regards

    Paul

    Is it possible to change the text in the button from Clear Form to Start Again?

    Unfortunately no, it is not possible to change that on the form builder. But you can copy the full form source code to your web site and then change that text there. 

    Here is how you can get it. Open your form on the Form Builder:

    1. Open "Setup & Embed" tab on toolbar,

    2. Click on "Embed Form"

    3. Click on "Source" and copy the HTML code provided to your web site..

     

    Also is it possible to change the message that appears when the button is clicked?  Currently it says

    "The page at form.jotformpro.com say:

    Are you sure you want to clear the form" then OK or Cancel

    All I'd like it to say is "Click OK to Start again" and nothing else if possible

    Yes, that can be changed. Click on Setup & Embed on the toolbar, and then Preferences, and then Advanced Settings and then "Edit Form Warnings". Here is the screenshot:

    @sanaullahrais,

    input_45 is just an example submit button ID to get your submit button you can use a tool named firebug the just activate the tool then click on "Inspect" and hover your mouse over the button.

    Here's a sample:

     

    Once you have the ID you can inject it in your CSS settings to hide the button.
