    How would I use conditional logic to validate a field based on a select

    Asked by dmoncrief on March 15, 2016 at 12:38 PM

    How would I use conditional logic to validate a field based on a selection of zip codes. I have over 200 zip codes.

    Will I have to create a if statement for each zip code?

    I believe you have multiple threads regarding the same question:

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/790356-Conditional-fields-multiple-values#2

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/536560-Can-I-enter-multiple-variables-in-a-single-conditional-statement-#3

    Comma separated values do indeed work in conditions, however, as previously stated, I believe there is a rather low limit on the number of values that can be added.  If you are trying to add all 200 to a single condition, it will not work.  I believe the maximum is 10 per condition.  For your set up, you would likely need 20ish conditions with 10 zip codes per condition.
