    Unfortunately it is not possible to create a form to search database based on any text. I would also suggest you to please take a look at our "Spreadsheet to form" widget and see if that fits into your requirement.

    You can upload an Excel file with all the data and a unique column data that could be the ID field. When the user input their ID in widget on form, it will fetch the existing data from the uploaded Excel file and display in form fields. You may like to take a look at the following guide which should help you: https://www.jotform.com/help/442-how-to-use-the-spreadsheet-to-form-widget

    Hope this helps.
