I'm using Elements Connect to pull information from a File datasource(Excel)

I am trying to make a search field using Elements connector , based on the selected value I need a syntax to pull the information and populate it in other fields.

E.g excel file has 4 columns - when I run the search it populates the information taken from the excel file but now how do I exctract that information to be automatically populated in other fields within the same screen.

e.g Search Employee      : Bongani Hermans

      ID                              : 

      Email                         :

      Employee Number    : 

Once I press enter the information related to the searched content should display as:


Search Employee            : Bongani Hermans (type to search)

      ID                              :  001

      Email                         :

      Employee Number    : Bongani007

Kindly please advise if there is a solution to this.

if you're using a datasource to populate elements connect it is not possible to link it to other fields. What you should do instead is to save the exel file as csv. and then connect to it via JNDI. here is the documentation of Elements Connect on how to connect to a csv file via a JNDI datasource.
