    Hello Scott,

    Thanks for patiently waiting. Unfortunately, it is not possible to import an external Excel file to an existing Jotform Tables. Unless, we use the import app, which upon testing works as it is.  Check out the screencast below to see my results:

    Please note that Imported entries via the Import App are considered real submissions. Your account submission count will be impacted, which may result in exceeding your monthly and total submission limit. We also have a guide about Understanding Your Account Usage and Limits and Import App: Easily Import Your Excel or CSV Data into Jotform that you can check out.

    Give it a try and reach out again if you have any other questions.
