    I am not able to copy prefix from one field to another

    Asked by MyUWC on June 08, 2016 at 06:46 AM

    The copy of a field name (Full Name) does not copy the prefix (Title) or suffix of the 'full name' attribute.

    It only copies the fist, middle and last name.

    Can you please tell us more about the issue you have and on which form you're experiencing this so we can take a closer look?

    If you are using calculations and you are trying to copy name field with prefix and sufix it will work if the copy is placed into the same type of field, meaning prefix + name + surname + sufix.

    But please let us know your workflow.

    We'll wait for your response.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for providing your form ID. I've checked your form and I am able to reproduce the same issue that you're having. I've also created a demo form. However, the same issue is happening again. if you copy full name to another full name it doesn't copy the prefix.


    It is related to using the drop-down field. To solve that issue, you can choose textbox field as a prefix. At that situation, it will work properly.


    If you have any question or issues, please do not hesitate contacting us. We will be glad to assist you.
