    Hello,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to populate your dropdown boxes from any external sources. 

    The only possibility is to download your form's full source code and add your own custom code to fetch and populate the dropdown boxes of your form. The following guide should help you on how to download your form's full source code:  http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form 

    Thank you!
