    Passing first and last name from full name to another form

    Asked by aspirebrokers on April 03, 2016 at 03:44 AM

    Hi Guys,

    I have Form A with a 'Full Name' field made up of first and last name.  I want to send this to another form with the fame fill name field but can't get ti to work.

    I tried this:


    But this puts the entire name in in each field

    I tried this but it doesn't work at all:


    I am guessing that I some how use the IDs:

    #first_392, #last_392

    But nothing I have tried works.  Can you help :)

    This means that your prepopulation parameters should be used like this:


    We have the same thing available for address fields, and for payment fields:

    I'm having trouble passing a date from one form to another. I believe I have it coded correctly, but the variable that is passed over is not correct.

    This is what the code looks like:
