With forms pro, can you add a branching rule that compares a response to data in an excel file?

Hey all

 

I need to create a form that first requires someone to enter their id number. I then need a branching rule that compares their response to data in an excel file from Sharepoint. If it finds a match, I need it to then go on with the form. Kind of like a login, but less complex.

 

I can't go into too much detail but I need the form to be accessible to people outside the organization, so I can't just change the share settings to accomplish this.

 

Can anyone tell me if upgrading to Forms Pro will allow me to do this? Currently the branching options I have access to will not allow me to access data outside the form.

 

Cheers,

Russell
