    My form condition logic is not working correctly

    Asked by bsbjadmin on June 13, 2014 at 05:04 PM

    Unfortunately, my form isn't working correctly, when a person selects the District the district number typically is displayed in the district column.  I would like for this form to allow a person to select the district followed by the county name.  Please help.

    I checked your from  http://www.jotform.us/form/41514715865155 condition statements, but there was NO procedures or conditions that makes district number displayed in the district column


    The condition statements existing in your form were "Show" condition that display District Country listings according the option chosen in the selection "Select district of petition signer" -- and this conditions were working as intended.

    Can you please elaborate more what it is exactly you wanted to happen on the form District option?

    We will be able to provide you with a better suggestion/solution once we are able to get clarity on the procedure you wanted to do.

    Please update us.

    Were you referring tot the field "Select district of petition signer" as the District# ?

    Because that field was hidden by condition logic , it will NOT appear also in the spreadsheet integration


    BUT if you disable or removed the Hide condition for that field, it will then appear in your the form integrated spreadsheet. I made a test of this process and I was able to see the District# field the form on my test spreadsheet

    So, if you need that field data to also be in the integrated spreadsheet, you must not Hide it in the form before submission.

    Btw, I also noted that in your form http://www.jotform.us/form/41514715865155 , Google Spreadsheet integration is not enabled. 

    If you were referring to download Excel spreadsheet in the form submissions -- the same functionality is applied. The data of the District# field will only appear if the field is not hidden by condition logic.

    Hope this help. Inform us if there are still issue.

    This is understood; however, I was told to hide that field based on this tech support response.  Please see the original post, http://www.jotform.com/answers/389588-Why-does-my-form-work-incorrectly

    Yes, I am also aware of the previous discussion you had with my colleague and the solution offered on that thread.

    Please understand that it was necessary to Hide the "District" field as a solution if you want to prevent the form respondent from filling in multiple District options

    I do have another suggested solution to make the District# still appear/visible in the spreadsheet without disabling or removing the Hide condition for the District# field. That is by adding an additional read-only Textbox field that will serve as placeholder for the value of District# option. Since the the Textbox field is visible in the form upon submission, it should then also appear in the spreadsheet.

    Please try this demo form where I have applied this solution  http://www.jotform.me/form/41637473506457

    I added the Calculation field (as textfield) like this:

    1. First, you must include Calculation Values to the "Select District petition..." option 


    2. Add the Calculation widget with this formula


    This is the shared spreadsheet were you can also see the spreadsheet output result.


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