how to link to new html page

Have html data entry form for MySQL. The php is in-line in the html form. ( So, just <form> ) Need it to jump to new page URL after submit clicked and code gets executed between <? and ?>. Seems simple...

So, what's the question? If I understand correctly, you want PHP-code executed when submitted and also a new page URL opened. Well, something like this maybe?

the form :

<form name="myForm" method="post" action="mypage.html">
  <input type="submit" name="mySubmit" value="Submit">
</form>

then after the form the PHP-code :

<?
if ($mySubmit) {
   .....
}
?>

So now, when pressed on the submit button the page mypage.html will be opened and the php-code will be executed.

You can also cause the browser to jump to a new page by entering this code.

header("Location: http://www.someurl.com/somefile.html");

Make sure that your php code doesn't try to print anything before this line of code.

erikfriend >> better post something like this as a comment, since this isn't THE answer and Dhalgren hasn't evaluated our comments yet, and also the question now is locked, so no other experts can help the questioner out directly. Hope you'll do this from now on.

I had it print a meta tag refresh from with the PHP. The other problem was that I had to do it inside of a frame.
