    How can I import an existing spreadsheet ?

    Asked by BBGVA on January 12, 2014 at 06:07 PM



    I need to import an existing set of data so that we can send links to individuals allowing them to update and correct their entries?

    We have about 750 entries in FileMakerPro and can provide .csv or .xls type files to import into JotForm.

    The form builder is not capable of importing existing data into the form.

    However, you may want to try using this JotForm Apps instead http://apps.jotform.com/app/import_data 

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further help.
