    Hi, I have a very complex sales order form made in excel. I want to be able to upload it to my webpage and have customers be able to fill in quantities and submit the form. It looks like jotform is only able to work with very basic excel forms? Is there anyway to upload this already fully designed form and have it be able to be submitted? Thanks a bunch.


    I can't submit a screen shot bc it has sensitive wholesale information on it. Basically what we are talking about is Several columns: Qty, Item #, Description, price, total. The item, description and price are filled in so that the client can find their item and then just add the quantity and it auto calculates the total for them. I just need to find someway to get this on my webpage, keep it interactive, and have a way for the client to submit their order to me.

    Unfortunately you cannot convert an excel spreadsheet into a form with Jotform. However you can still recreate the excel form using our form builder. Here are several guides to help you get started.

    That will be the day when you just upload a digital copy of your form to any form-creator and voila! Without human intervention, it will automatically know what type of input field to use, textbox, dropdown, spinner, email, text area and how to process things (calculate, submit, business-logics)... 😄
