Hi Webbuilder geniuses,
So here is a dillemma I've come to:
At the firm I work for, I am currently the point of contact for any FTP-related activies to include providing access to employees our our FTP client, support etc...
Recently, I've come accross many requests from not only my division but also from other departments and given the number of requests, I was thinking about the best way to handle this. I said, "Ok, why not build a simple MS Word document template for FTP access requests and send them out individually every time". I was then looking at the templates online and I realized..."Hey! Why not just build a webbased form and send out the link every time!"
I've looked online regarding building forms 101. I have an FTP server, and an MS Access database. I can't seem to figure this out. How do I make the simplest dang form that esentially allows users to fill it up, click submit, and the form gets sent to me via an attachment to my email. I know you can do this using PHP.
My question is this: Can I build a form and given that I have an FTP client server, (http://www.mosso.com/
is my 3rd party host)? If so, in a matter of a few hours, how do I get this done? Can somoene point me in the right dierction?
I am new to the whole website generation concept. I have frontpgae, access, this ftp client, and I can download anything not overbearing.
> Users fill up their information and when clicking submit, the form is sent to me via an attachment in MS Word or PDF. I'm using outlook
> As a bonus, if I need a database to store their values, I have ms access (and thats all i can afford ecause te company is small and they can't afford much - cost wise)
Let me know your thoughts! A sample form with instructions would be awesome. I just need the basics here. I'm super new to this and i'm up for the challenge!
