    It is possible to update a field depending on the selected answer. However, this might not working in the Date field. You need to create a form fields manually.

    Please check this demo form: https://form.jotform.com/63005544451953. You can clone it if you like.

    1. Create 3 drop down fields for the month, day, and year. Insert a regular Text Box for the month's name.

    2. Go to Conditions and select the "Update/Calculate Field" condition.

    3. Create a condition wherein if the Month drop down field is equal to 1, the value "January" will appear in the "Show Month" text box.

    4. Save the condition and create an additional conditions for the other months.

    Here's the result:
