Ok...i do not know much about using forms
But i need to create a form for a website where the viewers would type in
their name address phone number etc. and select a few options about a product
they own for the company I work for.
I have the form made up and everything and inserted text boxes and all that
stuff I believe correctly, but I have NO IDEA how to retrieve the information
that the viewers would submit.
and just letting you know..i do not know alot about Frontpage, so please be
simple and go step by step
ps.. I am using Frontpage 2003 and have Frontpage Extenstions

On the page you created the form, right click with the mouse within the
form, and select "Form Properties".
In the section that says "Where to Store Results" (or something similar)
choose the option you need.
Since you're using the server extensions, this is easy; choose either/or
both "File name" which stores the form results in a csv file; this file is
stored on your web server (it can be downloaded and imported into Excel or
other spreadsheet if you needed such a function) or "Email Address" : the
form can send the data direct to your email address; or you can have both
options - send to the text file and send to your email address.
Note, the email address usually has to be "at" the same domain as the web
site eg email@example.com where your site is www.yoursite.com rather
Next you need to save the form and then publish the pages via the HTTP mode
that the server extensions require to be used.
Test the form, by sending a message from it. You should receive the email
with the details.
There are other customisations you can do such as a custom "thank you" page
and custom error page. These can be designed to match your site design.
The options to set these are under the "Options" or "Advanced" in the same
"Form Properties" dialogue box.
Hope this clears it up for you and you can make some sense of the
