Friends, I would like to load a view into a select field.  The view shows first name, last name from a form called Users.  How do I do this?

I'll be honest that I have no idea what you mean by loading a view into a select field. Do you mean that you want to populate an HTML select element with values from a form's entries? I'm guessing you either want to use a Dynamic field or you want to tailor one of the examples found here - https://formidableforms.com/knowledgebase/frm_setup_new_fields_vars/#kb-examples

Thank you. Yes, I want to populate the HTML select element with values from form entries. I will look at the link you suggest.

I have tried to make this work and still struggle. Can someone help me with the actual code? This should be simple - because I am not asking for any complex tasks...but the answer is evading me.

I have a form with a select field. This select field needs to be populated with entries from a form X: (fname,lname) Just two fields from form X. But I want to filter the entries based on email address (where email=abc). So I want the select field to show first and last names only for those people who share an email address.

Can someone help with this?
