    We want to create a survey and automatically push the survey data to SQL or Excel (don't want to manually export the data.)

    Hi mcurley,

    Thank you for your inquiry. 

    While there is no direct solution available at the moment, it is possible to indirectly integrate your Jotform form submissions into your database in a number of ways:

    A) Use the Send Form Post Data feature to add the data to your database indirectly. You will need to write some PHP (or other programming language) server side code to insert the data to your database. 

    B) Export your form submissions into an Excel/CSV File and import it into your database. For instructions on how to export submissions in Jotform,please click here.

    C) Google Docs integration - You can automatically set up Jotform HTML table report to update automatically into a Google Docs spreadsheet. Then, you can export Google Docs spreadsheet into an Excel sheet. 

    D) Purchase the Jotform Application License.  This way you can have complete control over your data.  You can also customize the source code according to your needs. 

    We hope you find this information useful. If you have any other questions or concerns , please let us know. Thank you for using Jotform!

    UPDATE: We have now released integration with Google Docs:

    You can get your submissions directly in a Google Docs Spreadsheet. Please give it a try and if you have any further comments or suggestions, post it on the blog post comments.
