In InfoPath, fields can equal other field values. Nothing I'm trying is working. I simply want to say "Field 1" = "Field 2"
could you give us some more Information on what you want to achieve?
You can use a calculated field to replicate the value of another control such as a text box. In the formula of the calculated control you'd drop a reference to the Named Control of the text box. So whatever you typed in text box would auto appear in the calculated field.
