    I look at your second form and some of the field names from your second form does not match on the prepopulating URL.

    Example for the Date of Birth, the field name is DOB not DateofBirth.

    To correct it, simply change the highlighted part to DOB.

    http://www.jotform.us/form/51386186795167?firstName={firstName}&lastName={lastName}&email={email}&address={address}&city={city}&state={state}&zipCode={zipCode}&phone={phone}&DateofBirth={DOB}Gender={Gender}&Snoring={Snoring}&SnoreLoud={SnoreLoud}&Breathing={Breathing}&NeckSize={NeckSize}&HTN={HTN}&SleepyBusy={SleepyBusy}&SleepyDriving={SleepyDriving}&SleepScore={SAS}&Height(ft)={heightft}&Height(inches)={heightinches}&Weight(pounds)={weightpounds}&BMI={BMI}&MedicalConditions={MedicalConditions}&Medications={Medications}

    Here is the corrected version of the URL. I have corrected all the field names highlighted in your screenshot.

    http://www.jotform.us/form/51386186795167?firstName={firstName}&lastName={lastName}&email={email}&address={address}&city={city}&state={state}&zipCode={zipCode}&phone={phone}&DOB={DOB}Gender={Gender}&Snoring={Snoring}&SnoreLoud={SnoreLoud}&Breathing={Breathing}&NeckSize={NeckSize}&HTN={HTN}&SleepyBusy={SleepyBusy}&SleepyDriving={SleepyDriving}&SAS={SAS}&heightft={heightft}&heightinches={heightinches}&weightpounds={weightpounds}&BMI={BMI}&MedicalConditions={MedicalConditions}&Medications={Medications}
