    You can prepopulate the forms via the URL. Here's how: Prepopulating-Fields-to-Your-JotForm-via-URL-Parameters.

    However, we do not have a tool wherein you can prepopulate the form using a data from an external database.

    You can use the Spreadsheet to Form widget. This widget allows you to upload your spreadsheet to your form and use the values you have in the spreadsheet to pre-populate your form. Here's a guide: How-to-Use-the-Spreadsheet-to-Form-Widget.

    We also have an Import Tool app if you want to import submissions to your form. Here's a guide: Import-App-Easily-Import-Your-Excel-or-CSV-Data-into-JotForm.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    Unfortunately, we do not a feature where you can populate the form fields from an external database like MS Access Data Table.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Not the form fields from a database. The other way. Read my post again. The
    form fields populating the database. This is the swxomd time you have it
    reverse.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    You can create an Excel report and then import it into MSAccess. Here's a guide: How-to-Create-an-Excel-Report.

    You can enable the HTTP Post Data on your form and then write a custom PHP script that will connect the form to your MS Access database. Please check this article: http://www.sitepoint.com/using-an-access-database-with-php/.

    You may also use Webhooks to send HTTP POST notifications to a URL. Here's a guide: How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm.
