I'm posting a reservation's form so that people can reserve a place in a hotel.
I want to be able to handle that data in a simple manner so that i can call the people to confirm the reservation.
I think it's better that you post me the answer in those two manners so that i can decide the best ok?
Thank you.

Who's running the server?  Is it you or your ISP?  Does your ISP have FrontPage properly configured and are you allowed to have ODBC database connection?

Here is a way in javascript.  Probably the best for your situation.

<FORM ACTION="mailto:your@email.address?subject=Reservation" METHOD=POST>
All your HTML in here..
Your Name:<INPUT NAME ="GuestName"></INPUT><BR>
Your Phone Number: <INPUT NAME="Phone"></INPUT><BR>
Date of stay: <SELECT NAME=Month>
<OPTION VALUE="Jan">Jan</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="Feb">Feb</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="Etc">etc...</OPTION>
</SELECT>
<SELECT NAME="Day">
<OPTION VALUE="1">1</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="Etc">etc...</OPTION>
</SELECT>

Length Of stay:<SELECT NAME="LengthOfStay">
<OPTION VALUE="1 Day">1 Day</OPTION>
<OPTION VALUE="2 Days">2 Days</OPTION>
</SELECT>
<BR>
<BR>
Comments (Etc):
<TEXTAREA COLS=20 ROWS=5></TEXTAREA>
<INPUT NAME="Submit" TYPE="SUBMIT"></INPUT>
</FORM>

The only problem lies in the server that you have.  I can make you a script if you are running IIS that can run ASP pages.  Otherwise, you would have to use CGI or PERL script which I don't know.

What kind of server do you have?  software installed?
