    i have gravity forms and I have a fillable PDF I want to get the data in an email so my email parser can take the responses from an email, parse the field data entries, and input into SQL server.  Cannot find solution.  Will JOT do this?

    Using Jotform you may import the existing fillable PDF form to Jotform and receive submissions. You may also setup a notification on the form to receive the field data to your email so that you may parse the data to your SQL. 

    You may try using the Thank you page to redirect the form to an external web page to send the form data to the external database. We have a guide to work with PHP and MySQL that might help you in achieving your requirement.
