    Hi, thank you for contacting Jotform support.

    Unfortunately, loading data to dropdown options from an external source is not possible.

    However, you can embed your form with the Full Source Code and then add a custom script that will pull the data from your database. Here's an external guide that could help to achieve it.

    The closest we have is Spreadsheet to Form widget that can pre-populate a form with your uploaded spreadsheet's values.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
