    Though you can take advantage of our "Import Data" app to import data from database to your form submission page. However, it is not possible to populate the field of your form from any external data source or from your form's previous submissions.

    One possibility is to write a new page which will fetch the data from DB and then populate the form field by taking advantage of our "URL Parameter" feature.

    The following guide should help you:  Prepopulating Fields to Your JotForm via URL Parameters

    Hope this helps.
