I have two content types. hospitals and referral form. I would like to pull data from the hospital form automatically, example hospital name, address, contact etc when the user fills in the name of the hospital in the referral form.

I have used entity reference but i cant get it to work. It only gets the URL of the node but not the other fields. And also i have used autofill but it only works for a single content type. If any one has done this before or if anyone has an idea, please do help. looking forward to your responses.


Take a look at entityreference_autofill

The Entity reference autofill module gives Entity reference fields an option to populate other form fields with data from selected referenced entities.

  • Thanks Andre. I have looked at the module but it only works for the content type that is referenced. Or may be i'am missing something. Have you used it before for such a case? – Moses Sseggembe Mar 28 '15 at 11:25
  • "If you plan to load the referenced values from another entity type or bundle, you will need to add another instance of the same field to the referenced entity (source). " – Andre Baumeier Mar 28 '15 at 13:12
  • Thanks. I managed to do it using field collections and Autofill. Thanx again – Moses Sseggembe Mar 28 '15 at 13:45
