    How to pass values from one field to other

    Asked by DBHSHLI on November 06, 2015 at 03:57 PM

    Then how will you calculate values??  My understanding was that you can use the calculation method.


    For example:

    Drop Down Title

    Option A

    Option B

    A = 1, B = 2


    When someone selects "Option A", I would like "1" to be stored instead of "Option A" and when someone selects "Option B", I would like 2 to show up instead of "Option B" on the admin form results.

    It is not possible to pass values form one dropdown field to same or other dropdown field. 

    However you can pass values from dropdown field to text box field. 

    First you need to set calculation values form dropdown field. First value needs to be zero.

    Then add one text box field to your form and set conditional logic "Update a form field value" based on selection of dropdown field. 

    I have made a demo form: https://form.jotform.com/53095903672965? 

    Feel free to clone it.

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