    Hello,

    I need to fill a text field and it automatically fills another, but i have 5k options.

     

    Ex.:

    *Textfield* [ 134 ] *Filled with ID "134"*

     

    *Search in LIST or DropDown like a database* [ 134 guilherme rodrigues,

                                                                       135 joão,

                                                                      136 maria,

                                                                       155 gabriel ] *I Have 5000 ID's

     

    * Returns in a Textfield* [  134 guilherme rodrigues ] *It returns a row with id 134

     

    it's possible?

    I believe this is similar to this other thread that you have: https://www.jotform.com/answers/845912- 

    Anyways, you can use conditional logic to automatically fill out form fields. However, If you have 5,000 options, then I believe it is not possible to use conditional logic for this. First, 5,000 options might be hard for the browser to load specially you have directly embedded on the form. Second, there's a character limit to where you can embed on a drop down field. Third, if you'll setup one condition each option, that means you need to setup 5,000 conditions, which really is NOT recommended and will surely encounter a lot of problems.

    I strongly suggest you check the suggestion I have on the other link you have that I replied to earlier.
