    Hello nancymehta,

    Please note that when the form is submitted, the submission data is captured in form's submission page. You may like to take a look at the following guide on how to view your submissions data: https://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-View-Form-Submissions

    If you want to send your form's submission data to your own database you can take advantage of POST method. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-Insert-Update-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    Please note that wordpress uses MySQL data base.

    Hope this helps.

    Hello nancymehta,

    As mentioned earlier, there is no built-in feature to send submission data directly to any external database but with a little workaround it is possible to achieve your requirement. 

    You need to POST your form's data to your own thank you page where you need to read the POST data and save it in your own database. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-Insert-Update-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    Hope this helps.
