    Unfortunately form fields in excel format can not be uploaded directly to the Form Builder however you can import a form from a web page. The alternative solution for the excel file is to convert it to Web Page by publishing it and then import it to JotForm.

    When saving the excel file choose the option "Save As" -> "Other Formats" -> in the save as dialog box select "Web Page" as the Save as type, the Publish button would appear click on it to generate the HTML file  upload this file to your website and get the url which will be used in the import process.

    You can then import the form to your account by following the steps in this FAQ article:

    Hope this helps.
