    create a form connecting to my SQL database

    Asked by Adel on June 19, 2013 at 12:20 PM


    I am looking to create forms connecting to my SQL database; I want to use the form locally via internet browser (Intranet).

    Is there any way to approach that using your system?

    Thank you

    Unfortunately there is no builtin functionality to save your submission to SQL database. You can download your form's source code and write your own custom code to save submissions to your DB.

    Here is a guide on how to save your submission data in MySQL. You can change the script to connect to MS Sql server. http://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-Insert-Update-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    Hope this helps.
