    If you're looking to send submitted data to your database, then it is possible to achieve, here is a guide that will help you to achieve that: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    Do note that if you're not using a MySQL database you will need to use other options to send the data sent as POST from the form. 

    Hope this helps.

    Yes, you should still be able to send the submission data to SQL database as long as you can fetch the data sent using the POST method.

    You might need to hire a developer about this setup. If you are familiar with our API, then you can also fetch the submission data using that method and directly store them in your SQL database. You can check our API documentation here: http://api.jotform.com/ 

    I hope that helps.
