    I use the same basic form, but edit it with event details for a new event. Typically, I need to change say 20 items.

    Is there a way I can edit a form file (I assume this is some sort of HTML file) offline, then import the file into JotForm. That way, I could write a macro to change the offline HTML to include the new details, then import the HTML file into JotForm.

    I've tried saving a existing form as an HTML file to hard disk - this works fine. However when I try to create a new form via the Create Form / Import Form option, I get a message "No form found on the page. Please check the URL you have entered.".

    Thanks, Dain

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean to say that you want to download your form's full source code, make changes in form and then import it again in JotForm?

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to upload your form's source code in JotForm again. Is there any challenge if you edit your form online? What exactly you want to achieve while editing form offline?

    We will wait for your response.

    No problem editing the forms online. I just figured it would be quicker to make the changes offline via a macro, since I am changing the same things everytime.

    But if it can't be done, it can't be done. 

    Thanks for your help, Dain
