    The only other way of sending data to your database without coding is to use a 3rd party platform like Zapier to bridge this gap.

    Since you never mentioned what kind of database you're using, I'll just point you to some links from Zapier that might help:

    Other than that, you would need to hire a developer that will come up with a PHP/MYSQL script to pass your submission data to your own database.

    Alternatively, you can export your submission data to a CSV format, then import it to your database. The only downside is that this isn't automatic and has to be done manually on a regular basis to keep your database updated
