    The Upload field does not work that way.

    When you use the upload field, it is using the JotForm file server -- so the link to the uploaded file/document will always point to JotForm. This is why the uploaded file URL link is a JotForm link.

    Please take note that every time you integrate the form upload to Google drive, the uploaded file will be copied to your google drive account.

    I am not sure yet what will be your purpose of wanting to put the uploaded file link from Google drive into the integrated google spreadsheet. But if you just wanted to provide access to the uploaded file via the google spreadsheet, then you  can just Share the google drive file.

     I found this google guide https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2494822?hl=en . It may help in want you wanted to do. 

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