    Thanks for the info. I looked at the URLs, but didn't see an option for having the person who fills out the form receive a copy of the form. Is that an option? Maybe I missed something. Please let me know.

    The second URL is the guide for setting up the email sent to the users filling out the form:

    This will send a response to the address your users enter in one of the fields in your form.

    I'm sorry, but I still don't see an option for actually sending a copy of the form itself to the person who fills out the form. I do see how I can setup the form to automatically send a response to the form-filler. I hate to beat a dead horse, but is there a way to send a copy of the form to the person who fills out the form? Please let me know. Thanks so much! Sorry if I'm missing something...

    This option sends the same thing as the notifications that are sent to you.  If will include a copy of the submission data they entered.  If you are trying to send a full identical copy of your form with submission data filled in, this is not possible. 

    What you can do to include text fields in your notification is add a PDF link to your email alerts then enable "Show header an text" in your submissions page.

    Add pdf link

    Show headers and text

    This will get you close to sending the actual form.  Other than that, it is not possible to have the full form send in the autoresponder.
