    How do you copy information filled in for one field into another?

    Asked by MelindaStach on February 18, 2014 at 02:19 PM

    Hello.  Is there a way to copy data entered into a field into another field on the form?  For example, I am requesting address information for a contact.  I would like to automatically copy the address information into another group of address fields on th eform that they can then change based on their shipping preference.

    Can this be done?

    Are you looking for something like this : http://formdemos.awardspace.biz/formTemplate10.html

    As you can see, you can use the same information of other fields to populate it into other fields.

    However, that requires to use your form full source code as you need to insert custom scripts to accomplish that function. Here is the full explained guide on how to accomplish the workaround: How to Enable Prepopulating Fields

    And here is how to get your form source code: How to get your form source code

    Please follow the guide and if you get stuck in some point, do not hesitate to contact us.
