    Copy values from one form field to another form field.

    Asked by Mrkay on June 11, 2014 at 06:25 AM

    Hi there,


    Is it possible to have a forms field content duplicated into another hidden field?

    I'm looking at UK postcodes for example M35 9FB

    However, whenever I try to use the Conditions option and the insert text / calcuation option it is only carrying through the digits instead of the digits and the letters..

    I have choosen the advanced option of Insert as text as well.

    Hello Jamie,

    You need to check the "Insert field as text instead of numeric." in the "Advanced Options" of the conditions wizard. It will ensure that it copies the complete text to another field. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please take a look at the following cloned form and see if this works as expected:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41614065879967? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look.
