Hi Assuming there is a Formidable View called View V which is based on Form V. When the user selects any entry from View V, it Form A (not Form V) will be launched. The values from the entry in View V will become the default values of Form A. Please advise how can I implement the above using Formidable Forms? Hope the above clarifies what I wish to achieve. Thanks.

You'll want to add pass the entry id of the view through the url as a parameter. You'll then need to have the default values of Form A set to something like [frm-field-value field_id=x entry=[get param=parameternamehere].

Thanks for your prompt assistance.
My main problem is how to have the View V open Form A when an entry in View V is selected by an user?
Is there a hook or shortcode for this?

Put Form A on a page. Then in View V, create an link to that page somewhere in your view content. At the end of that url, add ?entry=[id]
