    I have mapped the pdf. I am now trying to get the shortcut to pull the correct record. I have tried:

    [formidable-download form=”frmproapplication38″ dataset=”[id]” layout=”1016″ inline=1]
    [formidable-download form=”frmproapplication38″ dataset=”person-id=[2060]” layout=”1016″ inline=1]
    [formidable-download form="frmproapplication38" dataset="2060" layout="1016" inline=1]
    [formidable-download form=”frmproapplication38″ dataset=”[2060]” layout=”1016″ inline=1]

    Field 2060 contains the record id that I need to pull into the pdf. I am hopeful that it is a syntax error.

    Thank you for your help!

    Almost had it by using the field id, but you must remove the quotes.
    [formidable-download form=”frmproapplication38″ dataset=[2060] layout=”1016″ inline=1]

    By the way; the current record is also without quotes, like this…
    [formidable-download form=”frmproapplication38″ dataset=[id] layout=”1016″ inline=1]

    This does pull the pdf but the pdf is empty
    <p>[formidable-download form=”frmproapplication38″ dataset=[id] title=”2016 Closing Statement (Coming Soon)” layout=”1016″ inline=1]</p>

    The view that I am using the above link in IS NOT the FORM that the pdf is populating from. Is that a problem? Both the view with the link and the FORM used to build the pdf has a common field.

    This is the link inside pro2pdf
    [formidable-download form="frmproapplication38" dataset="48401" layout="1016"]

    If the view is not the from that the PDF is populating from, then change [id] to [123] where 123 is the field ID of the common field that contains the correct EntryID from the “frmproapplication38” form.

    Can you pull the pdf based on a specific field and not the entryid?

    No, the shortcode requires an EntryID. You may use Lookup or Dynamic fields or add a hidden field with the EntryID to the view’s form.

    If you need assistance with adding the original form’s entryID to the view’s form, please complete this form, we’ll take a look and provide specific options.
