    Hi,

    I was looking at your answer to prepopulating a form from another form and I am wondering if the word "your" is essential.

     

    If I were to change Your Name to Name in both forms, would this work if I changed the Custom URL to refer to "Name" instead of "Your Name"?

     

     

    How can I populate a ZIP code text box in Form 1 with a ZIP code text box in address 2

     

    Form 1: http://www.jotform.us/form/42504452892153

     

    Form 2: http://form.jotform.us/form/42504312953146

     

    Thanks

     

    Daniel

    Hi,

    The URL parameters refer to the field ID.  So, if you change your field ID in your second form, the URL would indeed change.  I did some testing with your two forms and the URL to update the second form is very close.  The one part you would need to change is the zip code part:

    http://www.jotform.us/form/42504312953146?yourName={yourName}&yourEmail={yourEmail}&yourAddress[postal]={yourZip}

    This is how the URL should look for your thank you page.

    If this still does not work for you, let us know and we will be happy to assist you further.
