I know this sounds confusing. Basically, this form exists so that my customers can choose what documents they want me to post on their websites. I intend to create a checkbox for each document. What I am hoping is possible is that my customer can check the box that says i.e. "booking" and when I get it it says http/:....booking.pdf. If this is possible then I would be able to copy the link and past in their website instead of searching for it. There will be 100's documents available and dozens of customers so it would take an eternity to do it the long way. Please help me.

It may be possible to populate hidden fields on the form if an option is selected, but it would require the forms entire source to be embedded into a webpage.
This method is detailed here, option 3.
I would be begin by creating your full form, including hidden boxes for each of the possible documents they could select, although you could use just one box and have each of the selected documents placed into it.
How is that link to a document generated? http://mydocument.com/booking.pdf is it the same for every form user, only the the document name changes depending on the checkbox that is selected?

All form users will have access to the same documents. So, let's say that out of 100 possible documents, a given user wants 65 particular documents on their website. I have all of these documents stored on my server. Let's say one of the documents the user chose was titled "inventory".
If the form submission I received only said "inventory" I would have to search for the document URL 1 at a time. I actually don't care what the titles are. I just want a list of URL's that I can copy and past right into a website.
I will build at least part of the form and then get back to you. Thanks for your help.

OK. I will leave it up to whether to add hidden box fields for every possible document or if just to use the one (with each document URL seperated by comma's).
Post the URL of your webpage with full source code embeded when done.
NOTE: when embedding full source, you will have to reupload that source when you make any changes to the form on JotForm, so its important to try and get the form as complete as possible, beforehand.

WOW! I was really stupid. I can use jotforms in a much easier way to do what I was asking. I can just use the open html tool to create links to my documents. Thanks for the help anyway!
