    To clarify, do you want to add a hyperlink in your dropdown option? If so, unfortunately, that is not possible because most of HTML or CSS were purposely blocked to prevent cross-site scripting attacks or XSS  to our site.

    It will help us provide you with the appropriate workaround/suggestions if you can elaborate further on what you wanted to do using the form.

    We are providing a resale tax form for our B2B customers to fill out during the registration process on our site. These forms are assigned by state, so I'd like for the user to select their state from the drop down and subsequently open a window with the downloadable form. Does that make sense?

    Thank you for the clarification.

    Yes, this can be achieved. Please check this demo form: https://form.jotform.com/92037636949974 

    You can add a text field with the downloadable form link.

    Now conditionally show it based on the choice selected from the drop down.
