    I'm trying to understand, if there is a way, through your services, to make people upload a file, of the spredsheet type, and consequently to fill the boxes of the form, through it, the file uploaded by the user.


    : for example from excel file , if there is a column called "name" in to the file, and there's a field in the form that it's called "name", then, the contents of the file, go fill the form field.

    Yes, there is an option based on what you have described. You can use the Spreadsheet to Form widget on your form - https://www.jotform.com/widgets/spreadsheet-to-form

    Here is a related guide on how to set this up: https://www.jotform.com/help/442-How-to-Use-the-Spreadsheet-to-Form-Widget 

    Do review and let us know if this would work out for you.

    I've seen this before, but this widget does not allow users to load the file, but only to the site administrators, during the development phase! i need that the user can upload the file!

    Unfortunately, no, we do not have a way to let users upload a file and have the contents of that file populate the fields on the form.
