    Please be more specific. Do you need to code that in php or else or you just need an interface in order to change your database? I've understood the latter and if so you can use something like phpmyadmin which simplifies such processes.

    I think he wants to make a php form where the php script connects and inserts the form data to the db.

    I do not use php for this but were I starting out, I would search CF for 'connect' and look up tizag.com for basic code which can be enhanced later.

    Thanks for the replies so far! I actually do need a php form of some sort. I am intergrating it into my site. Is there some php code someone can type up or give me a link to look at for the code? Or any suggestions? Really Appreciate it!!
