Form "Save values do not submit"

Posted on 2011-10-24

On this site that I inherited, they have a button at the bottom of the form that says  "Save Values - No Submit".  Where do these values go?  I need to check to make sure it is working but I don't know where to look.  There is no login to this site so how would the site know what your values are?

    taking a quick look at the source code, it looks like the data is being processed by email_test.asp. You can tell by looking at this line:

    <form name="form1" method="post" action="email_test.asp">

    the action attribute tells us what page receives the data. Have a look at the source code (or post it) at this page and you'll find your answers

    I completed the form and clicked the Save Values no Submit.  After I do that, I get redirected to the thankyou.html page.  So, where do these saved values go?  It appears that they are actually getting emailed to client.

    without seeing any code, its hard to tell whats going on. My guess is that the form is getting submitted to email_test.asp, that page processes the data (emails it, saves it to a DB, etc), then redirects to the thank you page. do you have access to the source code? if so, post email_test.asp and I can maybe help decipher more for you.

    i haven't had time to play around with this.  Too many irons in the fire.
