    Thank you for contacting us.

    The data should be received with line breaks. However, there is no way to change that format.

    Example - email:

    Example - submissions page:

    are there any Widgets that will let you parse, similar to a substr() or right() or Left(), etc?

     

    edit: I see there's one called Substring but I can't copy the results to another field.

     

    Same thing with "Data Grid", the table cells can't be accessed in any useful way to pull them out and put them back into the form in their own fields.

    Am I missing something??

    You may use the widget substring. This will enable to get a substring on a field. If you can elaborate a bit more on what you are looking for, we may be able to help you better.

    Unfortunately, you cannot have it into a separate field and not even when using the calculation widget to copy it.

    The data grid widget is used to display a data, as a reference. It's NOT a field where data can be submitted to it. 

    How about using our regular dropdown field? You can use this field in the calculation widget:

    Please try that and let us know if you need further help.
