I cannot provide links because these forms are hosted on my companies server.

We have someworkarounds that will help users to pass data from one form to another, however those workarounds will not allow to pass the data to the second form before submitting the first form.
However, I think that one of these workarounsd may work for you if we add some more ideas and using some of our form builder features.
So, this is the workaround I am talking about: How to pass value from one form to another form
As you can see, it uses URL parameters instead of custom scripts to populate the data in the form fields. As I told you, this workaround will pass/populate the data only after submitting the form, however, since what you need is to allow the form users to compare form A and form B which will have some data that must be the same, then we can use the Edit Link in the Thank You message, which allow the users to update their previous submission and at the same time poste in the thank you message the URL of form B that will contain the parameters that will populate the data of the form A.
So, I would like to know if this would be OK for you so that I can give you the extended explanation and instructions with demo forms so that you can see how this would work.
I will wait for your reply.

Thanks for the response EliezerN.
I considered this method but decided not to go with it. My reason being that there will likely be alert messages sent to various people upon submission of form A and I don’t want to inundate people with emails especially when the process has not yet been completed. Meaning once form A is submitted the people receiving the alert will need to view form A and Form B.

Users will only receive an email after submission if you setup an auto-responder email. Instead, my colleague EliezerN suggested to insert an Edit Link in the Thank You message, so I believe the inundation of people's mailbox won't be a problem.
Let us know if this is a solution for you.
