I have two forms. One is the Owner's side, where he fills out the customer information, I.E., Name, Email, Invoice #, Total & two file upload fields to upload the customer's reports.

Once that form is submitted, the client receives an email stating that their report is ready and they need to pay for it. The link sends them to the same page as the owner's form (It's just hidden), and I have JQuerey that fills their name, email, total, and invoice # onto Form B (Client Form). However, I can not for the life of me get the file upload to transfer to Form B. I have spoken with the folks at formidable forms and asked, and they told me to use this shortcode ' [frm-field-value field_id=x show=id entry="pass-entry"] '. At first glance, it seems to work. However, I get a blue image of a file, and it says 0 B (Screenshot attached). Has anyone ever done this before?

Side note: once this has been figured out, can you attach the file uploads to the email upon successful payment?

Thanks for your help!
