    I believe your requirement is possible to achieve using the Dynamic Dropdown Widget. To add a widget, simply follow this guide: How to Add a Widget to your Form?

    Then on the widget wizard, simply enter the nested value as seen below:

    AM01
       AM02
       AM03
       AM04
       AM05
    AM02
       AM01
       AM03
       AM04
       AM05
    AM03
       AM01
       AM02
       AM04
       AM05
    AM04
       AM01
       AM02
       AM03
       AM05
    AM05
       AM01
       AM02
       AM03
       AM04

    This is how the form should look once you have added the dynamic dropdown widget.

    As seen in the screencast, the value selected from the first dropdown will be hidden on the second dropdown field.

    You can also check out this clone to see it in action: https://form.jotform.com/60822155745961
