Hi,  I am using a form to collect information from a customer and then have the customer click to submit it. Wht is need is for the form to submit and then have a Paypal link come up, to collect billing info from the customer. I have the encryted button code generated by
Paypal for this fixed price item, that I can drop into the page. When the customer clicks the first submit button, the Paypal link is never activated.
Thnks,
Steve

You need a server side scripting language to process the form, the most used are ASP, PHP, PERL, a cgi-bin depends where you host your website and what they have available.

Hi, I am using Server side to process the form with cgi-bin.  The form works fine with no problem. I am trying to get an "action" to happen automatically on the same page after the form is submitted. The action needed is to automatically "click" or activate a small Paypal form. Soemthing like : the customer clicks on the first form, it submits and another form pops up rom Paypal.
Thanks,
Steve

Hi, I am going to go ahead and award the points on this to both of you that responded. Although I did not find a way to do exactly what I wanted from one page and form, the soluton was to have the Paypal form on the success page from the first form submit. I went ahead and paid a programmer to resolve it that way due to time constraints to get this running.
Thanks,
Steve
