    I would like to create a searchable database. I want three drop down menus but I want the selections in each menu to be determined by the selected item in the menu before it. Can I do that in jot form?

    Hello Max,

    I am not sure if I have understood your question correctly.

    Do you want to populate your dropdown based on the selection of another field? Unfortunately populating the dropdown dynamically is not possible but if the options of dropdown value does not change, it can be achieved with a little work around.

    I have created a demo form for you. Take a look at the following form: http://form.jotform.me/form/40201981731447?

    Are you trying to achieve something similar? If yes it can be achieved by taking advantage of our conditions feature. To take a closer look at the form, feel free to clone it. This guide should help you: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Thank you!
