    It might be too much to ask, but does anyone know if it is possible to a fields value (using conditions) by concatenating something to its current value. Something like this:


    Field 1: Dog

    Field 2: Cat

    Field 3: Mouse

    I want to update Field 1 by using its current value and appending the value of Field 2 and Field 3 to it, yielding:



    I've attempted it and get some bizarre results.

    Repopulating a filed that is used in the same condition criteria will result in unpredictable data and text output will be repetitive, I would recommend using the form calculation widget and the outputting the concatenating values in its result textbox.

    Add a calculation widget to your form

    Select the Three fields to include in your calculation

    Click on the numeric fields to change the input type to text

    Now click on Show Advanced options


    Test your form

    You can clone a copy of the form, here is its URL :

    If you have any more questions feel free to ask.
