    Asked by SunbridgeInstitute on December 17, 2015 at 02:51 PM

    I see there's a really nice {email} thing on this form which pulls the email entry from inside the form and uses it elsewhere. I would love to do this in my form. Can you tell me how to get the names for between the brackets for my fields?

    I am trying to do this method in the following form in field 49:


    For some reason wherever I have a variable form field, the resulting text in PREVIEW is blank, even though the form is filled out completely. 

    Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?


    Thank you!
