    Getting forms prevalue source data from an external source

    So, i need to get some dynamic data in a prevalue source for a drop down in Forms. Specifically, it is members from another installation.

    I have the options:

    ![enter image description here][1]

    "Get values from text file" This would be awesome, as i have an export to a text file already running, and i could just type in the url... Computer says no! Text file has to be uploaded manually...

    "Umbraco documents" Could be useful, but it would require importing the members as nodes, and that would get out of sync with the source pretty quick...

    "SQL Database" Works great, except i need the member names, which are in the umbracoNode table, jumbled up with all other nodes...

    "Umbraco data type prevaule" Perfect solution, as i already have a contentment data list pulling the members from an exported xml located on a url... Problem is the contentment datatype comes up empty when used in forms...

    Any pointers on how to do this without backend coding? (After 15 years of umbraco i stil don't do backend)
