    How can I Link my form to MySQL Server Database?

    Asked by robertjakech@gmail.com on August 09, 2013 at 12:55 AM


    I want to sign up for JotForm. But can't until I have absolute clarity on the following:

    a). I want to be able create my Forms using JOTFORM but bind the fields to my SQL Database, so that when it's submitted, I can view the records from my third party app (fetching the submitted records from my db).

    b). Is it possible to submit the form as an attachment in extensions such as Excel?
