I have a sample form per say myform, when I slick submit button I want the file be process by two different action files (insertrecord.php, insertrecord2.php). Here is the sample code :
Is it possible to create two actions for only one form using javascript or php or any html trick ?

/** sample code */
<form action="process1.php" action="process2.php"  name="myform"> # !!!! pay attention here

   <input type="text" name="First_Name">
   <input type="text" name="Last_Name">
   <input type="submit" value="Submit Form" name="submit">

</form>

when I try your form it works, after I adjust my code it doesn't. if I use button it doesn't do anything, but if I do submit then it only pops the first ation but second action doesn't start :(
HERE IS MY CODE, ANY THOUGHTS ?

basically I have
<FORM id="formvip" method="POST" E="formvip" onSubmit="return vipvalidate()" target=_blank name="formvip" >
            <!-- DO NOT MODIFY: the hidden input field with id "webformid" -->
            <input type="hidden" name="webformid" id="webformid" value="b15c6d29-d71b-4e47-ac86-b8a256ff5c74" />
                  <INPUT id="vipparty" TYPE="hidden" NAME="vipparty" value=""><br>
....
....
....
.....
                  <input type="submit" name="submit" value="<-- S U B M I T -->" STYLE="background:990000; color:#999999" onClick="submitform()">
                  </FORM>
           
<SCRIPT language = "javaScript">
            function submitform()
            {
            document.formvip.action = "las_vegas_bachelor_bachelorette_party_processformvip1.php";
            document.formvip.submit();
            document.formvip.action = "las_vegas_bachelor_bachelorette_party_processformvip2.php";
            document.formvip.submit();
         
            }
 </SCRIPT>
