Can someone help?

Actually, I am trying to include a new content type using dropdown list which bind to a data table from database. Is this possible to do this without writing any code?
I know i can have drop down list with values but I have to manually insert one by one. What if I have multiple dropdown list and I have to create values for each dropdown and maintain them in different page.

Please advise.

You could create a Query that provides all content items of a particular content type, and display those content items as a dropdownlist using the Query element (a Dynamic Forms element).
