We need to import a pre exisiting list of Options from either an excel or database.
Is this possible? How?
What is the maximun number of options that can be provided as options to a dropdown?

I am not sure if there is a limit, but I would personally advise against adding a lot (as in thousands) of drop down options. For one, there's only so much information a browser can handle.
There is a possibility that a browser will have a hard time processing our form builder's scripts if there's such a number of information that it has to store in its memory cache.
To add options:
1. Click on your drop down so it is highlighted
2. Click the Options button
3. Paste the options you want to add, separated by a line break
4. Click OK then save your form
