    Currently, our system has no "import data" feature but I'll submit a ticket to request it.

    Before I submit the ticket, do you have a Google account? If so, try sending the form's submissions to a Google spreadsheet and then importing the extra data (from Excel, online or wherever) into that sheet. To learn more about our Google Spreadsheets (formerly, Google Docs) Integration feature, please click the following image:

    To import Excel data (assuming it's an Excel spreadsheet from which you want to copy the data) into the form's Google spreadsheet, first convert the Excel file to the Google spreadsheet format and then copy the range of data needed from the converted file to the form's spreadsheet. Alternatively, it might be possible to just copy the range of data from the Excel file and paste it into the form's spreadsheet but I would need to test all of this.
