first create a form and then an action page and view page for it in php and and create a table in the data base with all the fields you need to enter.

This is Java web development not PHP web development my friend...

Thre are different ways to do this.

1) You can use java script to add more rows
2) You can refresh the same page along with the data entered

However I am proceeding with option 2.

You will have two buttons. Based on the button click you can decide your action page
using java script.

1st button will refresh the same page and second button will direct to the submit page.

When you click the first page store all your form values in a array list or any other collection object and populate the same values in the form again plus one more row for new entry.

On click of second button , the action goes to final page. retrives all form values in a collection object and inserts to database.
