    Re: How to create a Form

    Thanks Paul,

    I am creating a stationery order form and need to link some of the fields. For example, I would like checkboxes for Letterhead, Site Diaries, Worksheets etc and then have a Quantity field next to each one. How do iI link these two items so that they appear side by side?

    Hi Kelly,

    Please refer to the reference site http://reference.elcom.com.au/Documentation/Modules/Form-Creator as it has the latest documentation for each module.

    In regards to your question above, could you please send the URL to helpdesk@elcom.com.au  and I will follow it up with the Implementation Team to see if it is possible to do this using CSS.

    Regards,
    Paul
