**EltonCris**Yes, that's possible. Here's a guide for that: https://www.jotform.com/help/286-How-to-Pass-Field-Value-to-Another-Field

You can also perform calculations and populate it to another field base on the user's answer from another field. Guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/268-How-to-Insert-Text-or-Mathematical-Calculation-into-a-Field-Using-Conditional-Logic

Hope this helps!

**max123jot**yes the above is correct, but i do not think i was explicit enough in my question

restated:

as the field values are different, i am asking again more specifically

populate a field (ie attending name) (dr. abc)

based upon the value of another field (ie institution) (hospital abc)

this may require a "look up table"

thanks

**BDAVID**Do you meant to consult data from another source? If that is the case, this is not possible. You will need to download the full source code of your form: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

Then hire a developer to create you the proper script to connect to your database, and pull the information into your fields, then upload the solution to your own server.

**max123jot**Actually a lookup table within the same form

**jonathan**Hi Max,

In your form https://www.jotform.us/form/62683444529161 can you please confirm that the "look up table" you refer to was the Matrix table field?

It is possible to perform calculation using the value from the Matrix table field.

User guide: How-to-Perform-Form-Calculation-in-the-Matrix-Field

Because you can do calculation on the Matrix table, you can also create condition rules base on the calculated value. It is possible to pass the value from the matrix table to another field in the form using the same method described on the user guide.

Let us know if there is more we can help you with.

Thanks.

**max123jot**actually one of jotform threads

thanks

**EltonCris**Great! I really think that's what you needed because you can't just use calculation formula, you can also use values from different fields or just write a static text value if you prefer.

If you need further assistance, let us know.
