    Hi Jayakumar

    I understand up to step 3: You click the Edit button of the form and it loads in the form builder. However, I cannot understand what you want to happen in step 4. Whatever changes you make in the form builder will be reflected at the form's address.

    Perhaps if you made screenshots (with notes) of each step, your objective might be clearer.

    Don't worry, we will eventually figure out exactly what you want.

    The address (URL) of your form can be found in the Preview window, if that's what you wanted to know:

    Hi,

    Perhaps you should login to your JotForm account everytime you create or edit your form. Right now, you have been using a guest account only which is a potential for problem later on.

    I am not sure what really is it that you wanted to accomplish, but I will try.

    If you want to view the html source code of your created form you can also do this by doing a preview of your form, then, in the preview window Right-Click then select view source. You can copy this source code and paste or convert it to .html format file.

    Hope that was it. Thanks.

    @Jayakumar

    To expand a bit on what my colleague has stated, although the form builder's various tools can be used to edit the appearance and functionality of a form, users cannot directly edit the source code of forms that exist on any of the JotForm domains. So, if you want to change something in your form's source (add a script, for example) you first need to obtain a copy of the source, either in the way described by Jonathan or from the Embed Form Wizard and insert it into a web page of your own. You can then edit that page's source to your liking. Alternatively, the copy of the form's source could be first pasted into an editor like Notepad or Notepad++ and changed there before copying it to your web page. Either way, the point is that you cannot edit the actual original source of the form.

    To get the copy of the form's source from the Embed Form Wizard, load the form into the JotForm form builder and while on the Setup & Embed tab, click Embed Form. When the Embed Form Wizard window pops up, click Source and copy the code provided. If you prefer to store your CSS and JavaScript files separate from the HTML, click the link indicated below:

    If you would like to duplicate some form field from one form to another this is not something that you can do.

    Please explain your goal in details. Then, we will try to find some solution for you.
