Linking logic between forms

Hello I was wondering if it is possible to link logic between forms. In the
questionnaire I am currently developing (on Nutrition and Early Childhood
Development) there is a part where the child’s date of birth has to be
entered (in one form). In another form there are options for choosing what
age range the child falls into (e.g. 1-2 months and 30 days, 3-4 months and
30 days, etc). Choosing a particular age range opens up certain questions
in the form (the logic for this part has been successfully set).

My question is, is it possible to set a logic whereby, selecting the
child’s date of birth in one form can automatically help select what age
range the child falls into (in another form), thereby eliminating the need
to do this calculation manually?

Yes this is what case management is all about! I’d recommend reading the help
site https://wiki.commcarehq.org/display/commcarepublic/Case+Management,
and specifically the tutorial section on how to load data from the case and
use it in forms
