REPEATABLE (separate fields)

Map the Repeatable Field_ID to a PDF text field anywhere on the PDF.

For example, if you have FieldA, FieldB, and FieldC in a repeating section on your Formidable form, then in your PDF Form;
. Name the 1st row FieldA1, FieldB1, FieldC1
. Name the 2nd row FieldA2, FieldB2, FieldC2
. Name the 3rd row FieldA3, FieldB3, FieldC3
. Name the 4th row FieldA4, FieldB4, FieldC4
. and so on… add as many as you need.

Then, in the Field Map Layout;
. Use the “Repeatable (separate fields)” format to map each of the fields in the first row of PDF fields FieldA1, FieldB1 & FieldC1 (DO NOT MAP TO FIELDS 2,3,4, etc….)
. In the “Repeatable (separate fields)” text box, enter the Formidable field ID [xxx] that corresponds with the PDF Field like the instructions explain in the Repeatable Section instructions.

Here’s a link to a merge using “Repeatable (separate fields)”.
