    Pass "text" from one field to another

    Asked by croatiast on November 16, 2015 at 08:27 AM


    this my form for testing: https://form.jotformeu.com/53192942322352

    I am trying to pass "text" from one field to another,
    but whatever I change in conditions, result is always "Calculation value" instead "text"!

    Can you give me some advice or show me a practical example?

    Thank you!

    I just clone and reviewed your form and seems that your condition is correct. To get the text of the dropdown instead of a number value, you just need to remove the CALCULATION VALUE.

    If you click the properties in the NAME FIELD and remove the calculation values, you will concadenate the text selected and will display on your test field.

    this form is just example and in another form I need calculations to be there - not to remove it, because I need calculations used in another field.

    So question is the same - can I pass "text" from one field to another but not remove the "calculation value from properties"?

    Thak you for your help!

    Sorry for my misunderstanding. I did not know that you required the calculation field for other things. If the calculation field has a value it will always try to get capture that instead of the text. What you can try is create various conditions and depending on the selection, it can display the correct text in the field.

    I have modified your form with this conditions:


    You may clone it and review it, if you like.
