Hi All,


Here is what I am trying to do.


  1. Two forms on the same webpage. 1st form stores data, submit button hidden to user, this form is not submitted it purpose is to store data. Its data is pushed to form 2 via Java Script
  2. There is a proprietary calculator which user plays with - data sent to form 2 hidden fields via Java Script
  3. 2nd form has all of the fields from form 1 hidden, Java Script populates these from form one


The problem. My developer has said that Marketo cannot handle the same database fields on the same page. This is his quote:


The problem occurs because the 2 forms appear together on the same HTML page, creating a syntactically invalid HTML which behaves in unpredictable ways.


The Question.

  1. Do I have to create duplicate database fields with a slight variation for form once so that they can appear on the same page as form 2. These fields will be essentially dummy fields


Thanks in advance
