Hi

How can we directly store information filled in by a potential client on an online contact & registration form to our mysql database?

Is this possible? If so - pls advice us with steps to do so.

When you say online contact is what? email? webpage form?

You can do that easly creating a php page with a form.

Please see our form implemented in http://a1telecomms.co.za/index.php/1-2
using Crosstec Breezing Forms for Joomla 3.0
How can we get this captured form data to be stored in a mysql database on submit?

As I remember, Breezing Forms has an option to export data to EXCEL in CSV format.
Login to Joomla administration, go to Breezing Forms, maybe under Manage Data and look for "Export to Excel". If you manage to do that, you can then import all data to Excel and process them from there on.

Here's something from Breezing Forms knowledge base:

Hi!

If you are developing a plugin for Joomla then I suggest you follow the manual on how to communicate with the database
http://docs.joomla.org/J3.1:Accessing_the_database_using_JDatabase

http://docs.joomla.org/Plugin_Development
