In formidable forms. How i can set one input field value to the other field in a same page. Lets assume that i want to copy the id "sfryw" field to another field in same page so i wrote [frm-field-value field_id=sfryw user_id=current] in the default value section of other field. But here the value is coming from the previous submit . It's not comig from the current real time . It will be helpful for  me if anybody can tell me how can it be done .

Hi Maeen,

If you want to use the value from one field in another field in the same form you can just put the field ID shortcode (e.g. [123]) in as the default value.

There's more about it here: https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/field-calculations/#kb-text-calculations

Can you do that from one form to another?

Would that be how to carry forward a user who had already completed a form?

No. Changing default values is a "going forward" proposition.

If you're using HTML fields and want to use the shortcodes of other fields in the HTML field, the easiest way I've found is to use page breaks: the HTML field with shortcodes must come in a page *after* the fields you'd like to carry forward.   Hope this helps :)
