Auto-populate form field based on data in list

Question asked by webharvest on Nov 3, 2015

I have a Nintex form that I use for people to enter information weekly.  The information they fill out in the form is stored in a list when the form is submitted (saved).  I would like to have a button in the form called "auto populate" so when the user clicks the button the data for each column from last weeks entry will auto-populate into the corresponding form fields.  Then the user can edit the entries and save the new form for the new week ending. 

 

When the user submits the form each week he/she picks a week ending date so each "item" or "row" in the list corresponds to a week.  The way I did this in InfoPath was I had the user select from a drop down in the form which week ending entry he/she wanted to copy the data from and when they selected the week ending the fields would auto-populate the form.

 

So far I can't figure out how to do that in my Nintex form and it is causing a lot of issues with the users.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
