Hallo Guys, I so hope you can assist me with a solution on how to create a simple (what I thought must be simple but doesn't seem to be) form, where the website visitor can look up which crane to use for his project. He needs to select a weight in tons and a radius in meters, and the form must output or show the visitor which crane will be suitable.  I tried to do it with conditional dropdowns, but get stuck with how the output should work. There is not a formula or calculation I use.  Please find attached the image with the data, to give you a better idea. I don't want the visitor to just check the table to find the suitable crane, I need them to choose the two values and the suitable crane should be shown. No need to submit the form. Just a lookup for the visitor. Any suggestions or tutorial for me to follow would be awesome Thanks Antoinette

I would create a lookup table of weights/radii and use Ajax to display the results.

Sorry for my ignorance, but may I ask for a step-by-step explanation of how to do that?

Hallo, so this is what I did, I created the data form and the public form, imported the data from csv file, but now how do I retrieve the results using Ajax, to display the relevant crane option, I can't find a clear tutorial doing that?
I'm very much in the dark here. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks Antoinette

Creating an Ajax request is done using jQuery and a custom PHP function. See this: https://api.jquery.com/jquery.ajax/

If this level of custom coding is beyond your capability, I suggest you consult with a developer. Here's where you can find help: https://formidable-masterminds.com/developers-directory/
