I have this code at the moment which posts to a external php file...

<script>
    $(document).ready(function (){
         $('form[name=form1]').submit(function (){
                $.post("/forms/yes-reference-process.php", $('form[name=form1]').serialize(), function(data){$('#msg').html(data);});
                return false;
         });
    });
</script>
<h2>Enter Booking Reference</h2>
<h3>You should have been told or emailed this by our staff . </h3>
<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">
<table width="300" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5">
  <tr>
    <td><label for="last_name">Last Name</label></td>
    <td><input name="last_name" type="text" id="last_name" /></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td><label for="reference">Reference</label></td>
    <td><input name="booking_reference" type="text" id="booking_reference" /></td>
  </tr>
    <tr>
    <td colspan="2">For example : 213423</td>
    </tr>

you can't... you need to send the field name/value of the form to the page. so you need to use ajax ($.post(, $.get(, $('#msg').load(

You can call your yes-reference-process.php file from $.post with a querystring builded getting values on <form> fields

$.post("/forms/yes-reference-process.php?" + $("#last_name").val() + "&" + $("#booking_reference"), $('form[name=form1]').serialize(), function(data){$('#msg').html(data);});

The problem here is that on your page load, yes-reference-process.php will be fired with the data contained inside those fields at this moment, when they probably are empty
