    New to Jorform and need to create a form that connects with a database

    Asked by Dr Stuart McArthur MRCVS  on May 27, 2015 at 01:17 PM

    I am keen to create a form with several sequential fields that collects data on vet drugs in unusual spoecies andf loads them into a database so we can ineterrogate the database by various taxonomies ( substance, species, indication, credability of reference for this data etc) and late from the database get a specific piece of dosing information back via a third party interrogation tool.

    I am building a sample form in adobe forms  - but I may be wiser starting in Jotform with your helkp.... please can you be of assistance?
