Hi eLu-sive,

Does the website already have an existing database set up for you to save your form results to, including all the database tables? If so, do you know your password to connect to the database? Do you definitely have MySQL or Access available on your hosting environment? What other information can you provide about your hosting environment, like does it have PHP or ASP enabled on it?


This could be done by passing your form into a php or any dynamic page which will store the data submitted into a database or csv or whatever.


Repeating Feemacbee's observations - where is the data supposed to go? The form needs both a method ('get' or 'post') and an action (the script that's going to double check and process it.) As in

<form method="post" action="../cgi-bin/monster.pl">


<form id="Form_Contact" action="contact.php" method="post">

And the reason your 'Mr/Mrs' section and gender are cancelling each other out - you're using the same name for both sets of elements, making them part of the same 'question'.
