i know it is possible to send forms to a new page and have it setup into a table style but i have not been able to find any info on it. can you direct me in the right path? :confused:

This is possible via the use of a server side language. PHP or ASP are both good to use to do this (although I prefer PHP)

if you do not have access to a server side language, or are too lazy to figure it out, you can, instead of using html tables, set up blank form fields (eg. type="input") and change the value of the inputs as whatever the user entered. However, this all has to be on the same page.

not really. i have written a JS that will move information across your pages... through the address bar.

so if you dont mind that then this is all you need.

download this file (http://www.ez4me2c3d.com/udf/getExprRequest.js)

in your pages HEAD tag place this line to access the .js file:

<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="filename.js"></script>

filename.js = the file you downloaded above, but change this to the name you renamed the file to. (if you left it be then type the exact name of the file)

now, to send info to another page you can do it through a form:

<form action="page2.html" method="GET" enctype="text/plain">
throught a link:

<a href="page2.html?name=anthony&age=20">click</a>
page2.html = the page you want the information to go to.

now to access this new info on page2.html, all you need is a little scripting like so.

you just type the name of the variable in the function and wallah! you have the info.
