    Hi, we require people to fill in a form that shows the birth date and in some cases it could be earlier than the 1920 limit which is set. Is there a way to change this? Thanks!

    Hi,

    You can possibly do this only if you used the form's source code. And modify the year's dropdown selection values.

    You can also use a dropdown field and manually populate it with years... something similar to what was suggested here http://www.jotform.com/help/102-How-to-Add-a-Time-Only-Field -- just changed the concept to years, insead of ime.

    One thing I found more efficient to use also is, by typing he values first on an excel or spreadsheet. I can create multiple rows of ascending values using the spreasheet cell, then just copy/paste the entire spreadsheets to the dropdown field options value.

    Hope this help.

    Thanks.
