    You can probably achieve this by using the form's full source code and create your custom application using javascript that will pre-populate the Dropdown field with imported value.

    At the moment you can just pre-populate the Dropdown field using copy/paste method.

    That is, copy the options from somewhere else, and then paste it in the Dropdown option.

    Or use conditional statement like what was suggested on this thread
