    It is possible to copy and paste data form excel spreadsheet into form fields?

    Asked by peter budd  on April 28, 2015 at 09:23 AM

    We are using forms to submit player registrations online. the information required is regularly held in an excel sheet. Can we create forms that will allow a user to paste chunks of information into the form before submitting it?

    Hello Peter,

    I am not sure if I have understood your requirement correctly.

    Do you mean to say that you want to copy and paste the data from the spreadsheet or you actually want to actually copy data including the columns form spreadsheet?

    If you want to copy the content from spreadsheet and past it into form, you may like to take a look at the following widgets where you can copy & paste the content of texts from spreadsheet:

    Squire Editor




    Please check the screenshot below where I have tried to copy the data form excel spreadsheet and past it in the widgets:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
