    Help on a Form

    I'm new to this Web Dev stuff, so I used Front page 2000 forms wizard to set up a basic form. I'm ok not great with html, and a little slow when it come to vbs and such. The reason I used the form wizard is I was having problems getting my form E-Mailed on submision of the form (could not a CGIs I got to work).

    Backgroud -- We have win 2000 servers, Exchange 2000, this in a company internal site (intranet) every one has outlook installed on there PCs and IE6. The form will be submited by company employees and sent to an outside E-Mail address to order dot-matrix tractor feed computer forms. (I think thats enough back ground).

    I have the form setup and working (in other words it collect sinformation and E-Mails it out) but I have a few problems. And I'm looking for some help.

    1. I may be going about this totaly wrong, if so let me know please I amy very new to this web stuff.
    2. After using the form wizard I looked in the html and here is the form tag, I'm assume the webbot is sending the E-Mail (is this correct)? Any one know were I can find out more information on this webbot specificaly what I need to do is change the from address on the E-Mail currently the from address = the to address, and the from add needs to be who actualy submited the form for reply purposes.

    <FORM METHOD="POST" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--">
    <!--webbot bot="SaveResults" startspan U-File="../../_private/formorder.txt"
    S-Format="TEXT/PRE" S-Label-Fields="TRUE" B-Reverse-Chronology="FALSE"
    S-Email-Format="TEXT/PRE" S-Email-Address="webmaster@hubbardfeeds.com"
    B-Email-Label-Fields="TRUE" B-Email-ReplyTo-From-Field="TRUE"
    S-Email-ReplyTo="Contact_Email" B-Email-Subject-From-Field="FALSE"
    S-Email-Subject="OnLine Order Form" S-Builtin-Fields
    S-Form-Fields="PickTicket PickTicket_qty Invoices Invoice_qty ScaleTicket ScaleTicket_qty Option_checkes Check_qty plant Contact_FirstName Contact_LastName Contact_WorkPhone Contact_Email comments " --><strong>[FrontPage Save Results Component]</strong><!--webbot
    bot="SaveResults" endspan -->

    2nd part right now I'm having the users type in there first & last name, location, and phone number on the form. Is there any way (an env or system variable) that I can grab that would have the users user-id if I get the user-id I can get the get the rest of the infomation and save the users some typing time (and boss said it would look more professional that way)

    In replying to this please be basic

    Thanks for any help in advanced

    ok that looks totally messed up to me. I can only help if you have a php parser installed. If you do let me know, email me because i cant keep up with all the posts i have. So if you do have php installed ill write you an email script and form.

    Webbots, eugh, spit

    As you're using Win servers, you might aswell make use of asp. It will be much better for you than messing with *shudders* web bots and be more 'professional' too

    When you say it collects the information, do you mean store it on a file for later use, or just get the info, put it in the email and that's it? If it's the latter, you could use my mail it script where you'd only need to know html.

    I currently have it setup to store data in a flat file and send out an E-Mail, but not all that important to put it in a file (was just going to use as a history). the main thing I need to beable to do is put the information into an E-Mail, send it out (ensure the from address is correct, like I said above the bot is putting the same address in both the from and to addresses)
    If you could send me a script that would be great, we dont have perl, C (just VBs) so thats been part of my problem trying to find a script.

    E-Mail add you can send to j.c.miller@charter.net

    Thanks
