I have checked your form: https://www.jotform.com/62464023152143. I am able to see the field's unique name "a_email" has been used multiple times on different pages of the Form.
And in the same way the field name "attending" has also been used multiple times on different pages of the Form.
Field name must be unique on form, since on your form the field names "a_email", and "attending" are not unique, because of that the value of those fields are not passing to another form.
So please try to keep the field name unique, and then check it again.
To get the Field name details, please check the below guide:
If you have any query, or need further assistance, feel free to revert back.

yes i edited the names to be the same
thinking that the program would take those fields and prepopulate the next
but....if i am planning for perhaps 50 different fields for name and 50 for

I have cloned your JotForm to my account and it seems to be working fine. However, I notice that there are some pages being skipped using conditions on the first form in which you may need to check the appropriate fields to be used in the thank you page URL being redirected. As I check the form and submitted the first form, I see that the institution and surgical case fields are pre-populated on the second form properly.
If you see any issue with any specific option on the form, please let us know so that we can take a look and provide you with necessary assistance.

i took your advice and made unique names as below to promote pre-populating
of the 2nd form
are suffixes for hospitals
but still does not work right

I have checked the second form http://www.jotform.us/form/62694590564164 and I can see the fields you have specified in the pre-populated link are not in the form.
Here is a screenshot of the current fields in the second form:
I would suggest you to double check the fields that you want to pre-populate, please make sure they have the same name in the form and the link.
Also, do note that if you want to pre-populate a value in a dropdown, check box, or matrix field (using radio buttons or check boxes) then the option must be the same, so if the option in the first form is "Option 1" then it should be the same in the second form "Option 1" exactly the same.
Please make the changes on your form and try again, do let us know how it goes.
