    Hi Jaci,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to update fields from a database or Excel file.

    You can however use conditions to populate a field based on the information entered in another field. This means that you can set up the conditions to have the information that needs to be place in the desired file.

    Here is a simple sample form of the condition at work: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50644235676964? 

    Please choose to enter an age above and below 21 to see the condition effect.

    Please inform us if this is a suitable option for you.
