    Value of the dropdown field options is always the same as field option. When field option is changed value will also be changed. 

    You can change Dropdown field options inside of Form Builder, by selecting your field and clicking on Options tab.

    Only other way is to embed form to your website, using full source code of the form and changing values inside of your embed code. Inside of this guide you can find out how to get full source code of your form: http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hi StevenSascha

    Is this what you're looking for - How to Assign Calculation Value? Calculation Values represents the number value of the text options. This is only available on radio, check box and dropdown tools. 

    Here's a generic sample form.

    Thank you Alexander.

    Yes, if you want to assign calculation values to your dropdown field options, then please check guide provided by Alexander. 

    However values of dropdown options will still be the same.
