    Unfortunately, it is not possible to pass the whole form's data to another form's drop down field.

    Could you please provide us with more information about what are you trying to achieve so we can provide you with a solution or a workaround?

    We await your response.

    Hi Nik

    I have a form that we use to record new clients. 
    I want to create a new form for capturing time sheets. When selecting a client on the time sheet, I would like it to pull information from the clients already captured on the new clients form.

    If I understood you correctly you want to pre-populate your form for some of your clients. 

    You can achieve that with our prepopulate app: http://apps.jotform.com/app/field_prepopulator 

    You can also prepopulate fields of your form via URL Parameters:


    You can create prepopulated form for each of your users. 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
