    If I understood you right you would like to fill your form directly from SQL database. Unfortunately, not possible with current options we have, but you could do that by creating your own custom server-side application to collect the data from the MySQL database. 

    And then in the website, you can use some Javascript or PHP that can pre-populate the form fields with values coming from the variables used in the server-side application.

    You can check this thread as a reference.

    Let us know if you have further questions.

    Thank you!
