    Is there a way to be able to draw information from a database to populate fields in a form, e.g.: select a song from a music database?

    Hello Andy,

    Though you can take advantage of our "Import Data" app to import data from database to your form submission page but it is not possible to populate the field of your form from any external data source or from your form's previous submissions.

    One possibility is to write a new page which will fetch the data from DB and then populate the form field by taking advantage of our "URL Parameter" feature. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/71-Prepopulating-fields-to-your-JotForm-via-URL-parameters 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
