You can extract the results in php with:

Where name is first and second.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

The SQL statement would be something like:
INSERT INTO description VALUES(id, description, choice1, choice2);
id can be exchanged with NULL if it is an auto_increment.
Remember to enclose strings with quotes.

I tried filling in the fields and submit. I get a page not found.
The action should contain the webpage that will process the input. E.g. a new php-page (ACTION="results.php").

The results.php file should then get the variables which seems to be:
$_REQUEST["T2"] for Client
$_REQUEST["T1"] for Date
$_REQUEST["T3"] for Project
$_REQUEST["T4"] for Job No
$_REQUEST["R1"] for Choice 1 (Communication)
$_REQUEST["R2"] for Choice 2 (Availability)
and so forth..

You then need to make the php script connect to the database and insert these values.
