Advice on Web to Database Forms
Posted on 2007-07-23
I am putting together a website for my son's school. Our plan is to use forms for the parents to fill out volunteer information and have that data e-mailed to the appropriate person to handle. That is fine, but it seems to be it could be done more smoothly if we were to collect all the data into a database and then we can pull out and distribute the info accordingly. I would create the forms in HTML, I would have to find some script out there that will send the data in an Access database on the web server. I have done something similar to this years ago using ASP on an intranet, but never from the web and honestly I don't remember the details.
Do any of you have any advice on doing this? Am I taking the right approach or do you have other ideas? The database will be fairly simple just parent information and what they are willing to volunteer for. Is there a good PHP site that does this?
