If I have, say 5 different forms(not instances)and each form has collected contact information:
Name, email address, job title, etc….
I want to create an underlying table (not a form table) with the collected customer information to use as a look-up table for a new form.
Not sure how to do this in P.F, i.e how to create a table with this information from 5 different tables.
Hope I was clear, thanksJanuary 5, 2010 at 10:21 am #4989
If you are looking to create a table (or more accurately a data-source) that can be used by other forms then there are two methods that spring to mind.
1) Using a connection you can pass data from the five different forms into a single database table and use that table as the data-source for other forms or
2) You can have another PerfectForms form which acts as the data-source. Use a ‘Form Connection / Insert Action’ to pass data from the five different forms into this single form, and then use this single form as the data-source.February 3, 2010 at 12:32 pm #5029
Is there a way to de-duplicate the table, I have looked but cant come up with away to do so.

Or allow only allow unique entriesFebruary 3, 2010 at 1:59 pm #5031
If you are using option 1 – Database Table, then in the Action you can select the ‘Distinct Values Only’ option.
If you are using option 2 – Form Connection, then it is not possible.February 4, 2010 at 1:23 pm #5032
