    Hi,

    After searching the forums I was not able to find a previously answered question, please excuse me if this is repetative.

    I have designed an online calculator, and want to be able to allow users to calculate the market price of gold. To do this, I need to dynamically pull in the price of gold per gram from an external source.

    Is it possible to pull in a value to a field from an external source?

    Hi,

    You can pre-fill a field with value by pre-populating them using URL parameter value. Please check this user guide

    -Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters

    For more advance method, you can also use the form's source code embed, and then create your own custom program using PHP or javascript codes to pull data from external data source and push it to a field in the form.

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

    Thanks!
