FrontPage 2003 not updating results database

I have created a data gathering form using FP2003. I have setup the data connections using the DB wizard. Everything looks good. The connection looks good, I do not get any errors. I had the wizard create the DB for me, without a problem. But when I submit the form, the data does not post to the DB? Any suggestions or is there something I am missing here?

sounds like either A) the page was not published to a webserver, or B) the webserver does not have frontpage server extensions installed/enabled
