    Hi, is it possible to link the value A from dropdown 1 to value B from dropdown B or similar solution? Can't do it with conditios as far as i can see. I have a corresponding list, say, for A-1, B-2, C-3 and so on. When i select A from the dropdown i want a field to be auto populated with the corresponding number, in this case, 1.

    Can you help me please?

    It sounds like you are looking for "calculation values" of options inside a dropdown field:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/301-How-to-Assign-Calculation-Value

    Basically, if your dropdown has options as:

    A
    B
    C

    and you assign calculation values to that dropdown as:

    0
    1
    2
    3

    where zero corresponds to the initial blank value when nothing in the dropdown is selected, when a user selects "A", any conditions or calculations will be looking at it as being "1" instead. Similarly, "B" would become "2" in conditions/calculations, and "C" would become "3".

    Please take a look at assigning calculation values to the options in your dropdown field, and let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.
