    Hello amyhchan. Are you thinking of a particular list or any list in general? The reason I asked was that there are several ready made lists online that you can just copy from the page and paste into your drop down.

    Hi! For example, if I have a list on excel, is there a way to import the list or I can only copy/paste?

    Also, is there a pre-populated list for "Country"?

    thank you! amy

    Sorry I took so long to get back to you.

    Regarding your second question, do you mean if one exists on JotForm? In a way, yes. But it's not a separate field. it's part of the address field. If you are looking for just a list of countries, with each country on a separate line, such a list is proving to be surprisingly difficult to find. Oh they're lots of lists wrapped in HTML tags and other code but finding just a plain one is like searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack. However, I will keep searching for you. There has to be one somewhere online.

    UPDATE: Eureka! :)

    Is this what you were looking for?

    As to your first question, I don't know. But other support team members will see this thread and be better able to advise you.

    Oops! There actually is a separate country field in JotForm. If you insert a drop down field (Form Builder > Drop Down), you will notice a button in the toolbar named "Special". If clicked, you will see that "Countries" is one of the items you can select. Somehow, I missed that before.
