    Hello carloboy90,

    Unfortunately it not possible to change the input type fields of just one column. You can change the matrix input type to drop down but it will change for all columns. Please check the screenshot below:  

    You may like to take a look at our "Configurable List" widget which should help you achieve your requirement. This will allow you to add different input types in different columns. Please take a look at the following demo form:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/41965257052962? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    Please be noted that it is also possible to hide the add button by adding the custom css code in the widget. I have already made the add button hidden in the demo form. Please check the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
