    Can I populate a drop down list using values from an imported ..xls or .csv file?

    Asked by NMaxwell  on March 19, 2015 at 02:14 PM

    I would like to be able to populate a drop down list on my Jotform with values from an imported .xls or .csv file, without having to type in or copy and paste the values. Is this possible?


    Thank you.

    Unfortunately it is not currently possible to populate your fields selections from outside sources.  We do not have the ability to import data from and Excel or CSV file and populate a dropdown from the data.  Copying and pasting is your best bet.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
