Typically a form will return data in a text file, html page, or an e-mail. The results can be manipulated by a cgi program also. Just how you get it into a data base depends on the data base you are using.

How you get it into a database can be done with PERL, cgi scripts, ASP or javascript.

u have to use a server side language to do the database operations. u should mention the name of the program on the server which handles this forms data should be written in the form's action property.

e.g
<form name="userform" action="useradd.asp" method="post">

the program which handles the data will be useradd.asp.

hope it helps

Then depending on how much control you have over your server (your access or your ISP access) you could use PHP and MySQL. There are a number of good resources for doing this on the web and a number of good books on the subject.

Right click on the form, and select Form Properties. Then select Send to Database. Select the Options button. In this screen, select an existing database connection, or you can have FP create the database.
