    How about if you combine the submissions of the 2 forms on a 3rd form. And then create the HTML Report using the 3rd form data.

    1. The JotForm Combine Submissions App will allow you to combine submissions.

    link: http://apps.jotform.com/app/combine_submissions

    2. Create a 3rd form that have fields/questions similar to the combined submissions data (the CSV file exported from Combine Submission App)

    3. Import the submission data (csv file data) to the 3rd form. You can use the JotForm Apps Import Data to import data from CSV flat file to the form submissions.

    link: http://apps.jotform.com/app/import_data

    4. Now that the 3rd form have data, you can create HTML Report using its data.

    Thanks, I think that should do it, just one related question if the import is done multiple times how to avoid duplicate lines ?

    Is there any possibility to define a unique index to perform updates ?

    Hi Georges,

    You can probably do the filtering of the existing data outside the form submission page..

    You can export/download the submission data to Excel file and then filter.
