    Hello, saw the "Dolzy" related prepopulation post, as well. New Question: Can you suggest the best way I might utilize prepopulation, for taking a registration form submission, comparing the residential part of that information to a database of 450 locations around the USA, and ending up with 3 newly-created PDF pages/files, that each have their own standard layout/formatting, and combine in the form submission info, with the matched database info, so as to display it inside each of the three PDF formatted result pages/files? Clear as mud?

    I believe that what you're aiming to achieve is way more complicated than what Jotform can handle. Comparing information submitted in a form to a database and then displaying pdf files/pages with relevant info extracted from that database will take a lot of custom web programming.

    Although I think there might be some web applications that might give the same results, I apologize if there's not much information I can offer regarding this. Thank you for understanding.

    If there's anything else I can assist you with, please feel free to post again.
