    Do you offer autofill from a database (excel)?

    Asked by jjprescott on April 18, 2014 at 04:54 PM

    I'm looking for a form that when a member enters his unique employment ID in one field, the form will look in an excel database and fill in the other fields. i.e.: Name, phone, address, etc. Can JotForm do this?

    There is no automated means to do this.  But you may want to take a look at these JotForm Apps that do a near similar application.

    1. Import Data - http://apps.jotform.com/app/import_data

    2. http://apps.jotform.com/app/field_prepopulator

    If you have the resources (programmer, website), you can also customize the form using its full source code and use PHP and javascript functions to do the pre-population you need.

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