    Can I create Forms that would would perform a query search on my MySQL Database, return data to a form, allow the user to edit the data in the form, then would allow the user to submit and Update that record in the MySQL Database.  Could users also create a new record in the mySQL Database from the form?

    Please be noted that the submission received by a JotForm will be stored in the respective account. Once the form receives the submission, you may send the form submission to MySQL database as well by following the guide.

    If you want to query the external MySQL database and to display the information on the form, it is required to write custom code. If you are not a programmer, you may hire one from Upwork or Freelancer websites.
