    The webpage is asking for a password, may I know what is the password we can use to access the webpage so that we can further investigate?

    We'll wait for your reply. Thank you.

    Sorry about that I had forgotten that I had put a password into it, it is now removed.

    If I forget and manage to put in again it will be $$$$$$.

    Please test this form http://www.jotformpro.com/form/51436586105960

    Let us know if this can work for your requirement.

    Please take note that the Full Name input is not locked.. it means the 'Withheld Name' value can be easily overwritten by typing something into the input field.

    Let us know if there is more we can assist you with.

    That looks like the sort of result I am looking for, thanks, but you have not given me the usual Cloning option or changed the original (probably not what you as a rule).

    I assume that the input field is the same one for either Option as the title SH Name does not change.

    I also assume that there is no way of "sending" data to one other field, a sort of "Catch All", that can then be displayed in the listing.

    Thanks for your help so far.

    If I understood you correctly you want to pass values from two fields into one new field. You can do that by using conditional logic to pass values from one field to another. 



    Here is a demo form I made. Where values from two fields are passed to one field.

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
