    Do you have a form which can make look-ups to a database?

    Asked by Jennifer  on March 03, 2017 at 05:21 PM



    Do you have a form where a customer will place a unique number in one box and an email address in another box, and if there is a match in my database, some additional customer information and their image will display?

    JotForm does not have an immediate capacity to do look-ups on forms to a database. But it is possible with a bit of coding and having the form placed on a separate file. It should work well on a PHP-enabled web host where you can do AJAX.

    You can get your form's full HTML source by following the steps from this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    If you need assistance on this, please let us know.
