    This is not possible using our Conditional Logic feature. But it's possible if you'll use the form's full source code and have a custom script that will fetch data from your database (you need to import your excel in a database like MySQL) and auto fill it on your form. However, you'll need to have knowledge with programming or hire a developer for this setup. You'll also need to have a web page where you can place your form's full source code.

    Here's how I'll set it up:

    1. In my web page, I'll paste my form's full source code.

    2. I'll then create a custom script that will fetch data from my database and auto fill it as defined variables in my form's fields directly on the full source code.

     

    I hope that helps.
