    We require a system for online registration, confirmation, invoice, payment, receipt and can also send the info/merge/integrate with our existing database. 

    I used the External Data tab in our database to import a jotform excel file. It created a new record- but I want to connect to existing records. Also, I was limited to the personal information fields so our database objects would have to be changed to make it work. 

    Can I use jotform for online registrations that will import to my database?

    thanks

    Hi,

    You can indeed send your submission data directly to your MySQL database.  You would first need to POST your data to the submission page:

    Then create your PHP script:
