    Hello Alex,

    Unfortunate it is not possible to achieve your requirement. Please note that it is not possible to populate form fields with data from any external source or previous submission data.

    You may like to take a look at our API offerings which will help you fetch submission data but you will have to do custom programming to achieve this. You may like to take a look at our API documents which should help you:  http://api.jotform.com/docs/

    Thank you!
