Question: Solved: HTML Form help

I have tried to fix my form for days now and am having nothing but bad luck. It worked until the website owner had me make a few small changes. I am not sure what I did that has wrecked it, but I have an idea about where in the code it happened. Can anyone take a look at the code for me and give me some idea what to do please? I am very much a beginner and do not know a lot.

Angels of Destiny Edited to add: it is on the request an angel page.

I need the form responses to go to [email protected] and I need the visitor to be directed to her thank you page (thankyou.html)

Thank you in advance

I'm trying to set up a website for mobile devices and have encountered a problem I, with my limited brain-power, cannot solve. So I thought that I would throw it out there and hopefully find someone who knows the solution!

I am using a free template from an outfit in Australia - - which uses a javascript expand and collapse routine, which works fine except where I have included a web form to get specific information from prospective clients.

The problem is that the form automatically expands itself and will not contract - you'll get a better idea of what I mean if you view the page (in a normal browser) - here -

Any ideas?

YOu only need to name the form elements if there is scripting that needs to reference that element name for some sort of processing. Passing variables from one page to another is a good example.

Question: HTML Form

Hi. I am a begginer webmaster(!)

I was wondering if any master-coders out there could help me with a form i was building. There are two problems on it. When you hit submit, it runs posting via Outlook or Outlook Express which in turn asks the sender if this is ok and warns him it is a nor secure connection. I'm feeling this is worrying potential buyers. I'm sure there must me a way to send this info without using a mail provider.

Another problem: I have just added a new funky way of ordering, using an add button to move the selection accross to another box, but these selections are not sent along with the rest of the form.

Please help. Paul.

(PS) I will add the form as an attatchment if requested.

Question: HTML E-mail Form

Hi, i am looking to put a form on a website which when submit is pressed it sends the message to an e-mail address. I know how to create a form on dreamweaver but dont know how to get it to send to my e-mail address.I will not be able to reply for a couple of hours but thanks in advance!

Answer:HTML E-mail Form

In the opening Form Tag you would put the following parameters:-<form action="mailto:insert the email address here" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="insert a name here" id="insert an ID here">Be careful. This is not a very secure way of sending data. If you are collecting data from potential customers then you have a legal responsibility to protect that data. It is OK to collect data like names or email addresses this way but it is not OK to collect sensitive data.

Answer:Online form in html

You need a form handling script, which takes the information the form user inputs and turns it into an email which is then sent on to the address you specify in the handler script.Most people use either a CGI (Common Gateway Interface) or PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) script.Your choice could be governed by what the web host supports where the site is currently hosted. If you are allowed to run your own CGI scripts and you have a CGI bin you can obviously choose to use a CGI script. Where the web host supports PHP you can opt to use that instead.PHP scripts are usually easier to get your head around than CGI when you are first starting out. Most PHP scripts need no file permissions assigned to them, while pretty much all CGI scripts need permissions assigned to allow them to run using CHMOD on Apache servers, or by using the built in permissions tools in your FTP client.Here are some links for you to try for PHP form handlers:click hereclick hereclick hereAnd for CGI scripts: click hereI'd plump for PHP if your web host supports it. Instructions for use are on the various script sites and included when you download them.T

I'm learning how to write websites in HTML and I just learned the <form> command and the different form elements you can use with it. When I set the command to MAILTO:[email protected] it opened up my computer's default mail program. I'm wondering if there's any way to have the information sent to my e-mail without using an external program.

Answer:HTML form programming

Yes, with the mailto in the href, the client's default email software is invoked, which
exposes the target email address.

The other choice is to send a message to the webserver where cgi programming forms parameters to the sendmail api on the webserver itself. This hides all the email addresses and allows extra data to be inserted in the message.

Instead of an href with mailto, the form action is used to point at your cgi program on the websever to process all the forms data.

Question: html email form

does anyone know an application/program that would do this:1. Design a form that could be used on a web page (in HTML) where users could input data.2. There needs to be a "send" button on the form and when the user presses this, it extracts various pieces of the data and sends it to me as an email.I have had a qucik look around and can find something that will "design" the form (MS Front Page), but get lost with the "extraction and emailing" bit. I suspect that this may be because the web server that I use does not support the appropriate extensions - but not sure on this.

I have designed a form to send me feedback from users - it's very simple but serves what I need.

Anyhow, I am not allowed to use cgi scripts on the server - so I am trying to use the following command:

<form method="post" enctype="text/plain" action=" from Making the Most of Santiago" >

From Firefox, this seems to work ok with either Eudora or Outlook. From IE, the subject and e-mail address work, but the body of the e-mail is not filled out.
Is this a limitation of IE, or am I doing something wrong?

Answer:html FORM with mailto:

Being fairly new to forms, I cannot give you a perfectly accuate answer. But my answer would be, maybe part of both.

I had a basic html form and had lots of trouble with different browsers treating it differently. IE seemed to be the most friendly, while netscape sent the data in a file which had to be downloaded and parsed.

I gave up and searched for a cgi script and after a couple of days I finally got one working like I needed. I will now advance to php for more interactive scripting. I found a real budget hosting plan with cgi at

Hey guys,

Been struggling with an email pre-authorization form (html based and being submitted via PHP). At first I tried a fillable PDF form but that did not work out as the only output I could get in IE and Chrome was in XML which my client does not want so I have reverted to PHP to handle the sending of the form and data. So, I have modified some code I found (which originally worked) but I am not getting the email to send. The url to the test bed is here so you can check it out and see that it does not create the email needed. I'm certain it is merely an error in the coding someplace (I think it is something to do with the error checking). I am not a PHP programmer and am requesting someone here to look at it and at least steer me in the right direction. I really need an answer fairly quick guys so please help out here.

How do I create a form with text fields and a submit button and enable it to store the data and email it to an address?

Answer:html submittable form

You use HTML to make the form and then use PHP or Perl or whatever other language that is capable of sending data to send it.
Example form:


<form method="POST" action="send_data.php">
Data1: <input type="text" name="data1" /><br />
Data2:<br /><textarea name="data2></textarea><br />
Data3: <input type="password" name="data3" /><br />
<input type="submit" value="Send" /><input type="reset" value="Reset" />

And the php function you need is mail();.

You can also search the forums for examples, here's one from a few months ago:

Could somebody please take a look at the HTML for the form> tag on click here and confirm it is coded OK. The form submit fails with an 'Internal Server Error'. The script is definitely present within cgi-bin and CHMOD = 755.If this looks OK, I would like to follow this up with a check on the parameter coding within the script itself. But first things first!The current syntax of the Form> tag has evolved from that generated automatically by Dreamweaver MX which gave persistent HTTP 405 errors - so things have moved on a little!p.s. if you decide to try the form there are numerous mandatory fields, so just insert any old rubbish to complete it!Many thanks, M - HTML form - fails

The address to the formmail script should be cgi-bin/ and not the full URL of the siteThe form should have the following fields: <form name="form1" method="post" action="/cgi-bin/"> <p> <input type="hidden" name="subject" value="Title of the email subject" /> <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="Full URL including http of the 'thank you for contacting us' page" /> <input type="hidden" name="recipient" value="email address of the recipient" />You can specifiy most of this in the script if you know how, but the above is probably the simplest method for getting it to work.The Formmail script itself should have this for its first line [sometimes differs from one host to another]:#!/usr/bin/perlThe next unxommented line is the address of your email program script on the server:$mailprog = '/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -t';@referers = ('your site URL without www','your site URL with www','you can use localhost as well if required');@recipients = &fill_recipients('your site URL without the www','again you can leave localhost in if required');And that should get you running.You can alter and configure lots more but normally you don't need to and the above will take pretty much any form field type you could mention and process it correctly when passed through the script.One last thing: you may want to rename to something else like or whatever, then change the reference in the form to point to that file in your cg...

See the webform located at which I created only to use the generated HTML from the browser source.

Can you view the source, look at the HTML and help me to craft the following:
Additional button [Calculate] to be located to the right of "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" and when clicked will calculate the product of "Amount" and "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" and place the newly calculated value in "Calculated Total". Database fields exist for all form fields and are named as seen in the source. I am assuming javascript is necessary to accomplish this. My javascript skill is very limited. I am also assuming there is no reason the javascript will not work if placed inline on the same page. "Add 3% Electronic Payment Convenience Fee" field and "Calculated Total" field should not be editable by user.

This CMS system allows HTML to be used where needed. I can copy the HTML from this type of form (which is built using a site tool) and place the HTML into a new site page, edit the HTML so as to reformat the layout of the table, customize attributes such as placeholder text and other changes.

I hope this is enough information. If not, feel free to ask.


Answer:HTML & javascript form field value calculation

Hello All...

Another thought I guess is that javascript could be disabled in the user's browser. The more I consider this, the more I believe that I could do without storing the calculated total especially knowing that results could be skewed based on user's browser. Amount, Item Name and multiplier used in Fee are required. Others are not. However, I still wish to display the calculated total if the user wishes to click the [Calculate] button to see it.

Make sense?

I tried before and after the "submit" input (the logical place), with no luck (does it matter where I put it?). Does it work only if I have an "action" (in this case "mailto:"), or would it still work if I left the action attribute blank? Or do I have the whole process wrong?

Greetings, BexBomb.

Sounds like you've got something missing, most likely a bracket. Look for code similar to this:

<form>yada yada</form

Notice the missing > after the second "form".

If you can't find the culprit, post the address and I'll take a look at it, or you can validate the page at which should show any HTML mistakes on the page.

Having got over the PHP hurdle click here I have now discovered a new problem. My form doesn't work! click here to view it.Would anyone be able to work out, from the source code, why none of the text from the fields reaches my inbox? I just get a blank email, even though I have filled in all fields and the elseif command is included in the PHP file.

I am working on a user form in Microsoft Word 2002 and have been having problems saving it as an html format. I am currently trying to save it as "Filtered HTML" using VBA. I have the same problems however even if I try to save it as unfiltered HTML.

Anyway, it is a protected form with various types of form fields. When saving as html, the text box form fields show up fine, but the other types of fields (drop-down and check-box) do not show up.

If anyone has any ideas about why this is occuring or possible solutions, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks!!

thanks for taking a look at this thread, any help will be greatly appreciated by a complete Noob.

I've been given a LOT of help by members of this Forum (especially OBP) with a DB I'm making as a first look at any type of IT product, and I'm very grateful, so thank you all.

Recently, I was advised to take a look at the "Tabbed" style of "MainForm" instead of the "Switchboard" style I originally used. I must say, I really like the tabbed style much more than the switchboard but I've hit one hurdle that I can't seem to overcome.

In the Switchboard style, I was able to set a form to load in either DATA ENTRY = YES or DATA ENTRY = NO mode depending on which sub-switchboard the user selected. For example, I had a ENTER NEW sub-switchboard that all forms would open in DATA ENTRY = YES mode & I had another EDIT EXISTING sub-switchboard that all forms would open in DATA ENTRY = NO mode.

However, with the new tabbed style, I cannot set the form load type for separate tabbs, it will only accept the LAST type as the GLOBAL type. Example, on the ENTER NEW tab, I set the form to load as DATA ENTRY = YES & sets the form to open in DATA ENTRY = YES on both tabs, then I go to the EDIT EXISTING tab & set the same form to DATA ENTRY = NO & it sets the form to open in both tabs in DATA ENTRY = NO mode.

So, my question is:
Can I set the same form to load differently on different tabs on the same MainForm?
If so, w... Read more

Answer:Solved: MS Access - Tabbed MainForm - How to make a form open a form in multiple mode

I would just copy the Subform, so you have version 1 for data entry with the Data Entry set to "Yes" and version 2 set to "No".
The only thing you need to do then is to Requery the Editing form each time you make an entry in the data entry form.
Although I prefer to just have an Edit form with a "New Record" button for the data entry.

My multi item form isn't letting me add new records, only update and delete current ones.

My guess it that this is because the form is based on a multi-table query. That's fine, I can make a new form specifically for adding new records, but I'd like to be able to salvage this form if possible. Is there any way to either force this form to accept new records in the bottom row, or is there any way to get rid of the "add record" bottom row completely so it's not misleading users into thinking they can add records here?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all

I have a simple Access (2003) db which has a single form view with a subform. The main form is a record based upon a physical case file the subform only details actions past and future, a sort of event log.

I also have a continuous form which displays all upcoming actions sorted by date on all cases for a particular user so they can see just how busy they are likely to be for a particular period. What I would like to do is have an on click() property for the detail of the continuous form so that it opens the main form filtered by the record in the continuous form that was clicked. User can then update or add new events for that case before closing form and returning to the continuous form

Hope this makes sense

Answer:MS access open single form filtered by selected record in continuous form

coasterman, welcome to the Forum.
It makes perfect sense.
If you add a Command Button to the Continuous Form and after selecting the mainform select the "Open the Form and find specific data to display". This will give you the code that you need to add to your On Click or On Double Click property or of course leave the button and use that.

Hi All,

Noob first-time poster I'm afraid!

I'm new to Access 2007 (but have used 2003 & 2000 reasonably extensively).

I'm building an App and have created all the necessary tables, as well as creating the relationships in the Database Tools area (which I know are correct - I'm a SQL Server DBA in my day job)!

Anyway, it's an almost text book example of an employers and employees database; one employer having many employees (employerID is the foreign key on the employee table).

I have created an employer form (using the wizard) which is fine, but then when I add a button to open the employee form (selecting 'Open the form and find specific records', matching employerID on the Employer table with EmployerID on the Employee table) it doesnt work. Instead, I get a popup box asking me for the EmployerID! Even if I manually enter the correct employerID when the popup box appears it actually displays all records, so I'm sure that the problem is more fundamental (and therefore, probably my fault)!

I'm hoping that I've just overlooked something REALLY stupid, but would apprecaite any suggestions!


Answer:Access 2007 Form Button Wizard - Form does not open with the correct records

I have seen this kind of problem with Access 2007 VBA code which does not work when it dod in 2000-2003.
It can be a Syntax problem which you may be able to get around, if not you can get around the problem bby using a Criteria in the Query that supplies the Employee Form.
Although I would have thought it would be better design wise to have the Employees as a Subform or Tabbed Subform on your Employer Mainform.
I do not have Access 2007, only 2003 so I can't help with the VBA, but you could post the code anyway.

Did you use a Wizard to create the Employee Form, if so check the Record Source SQL it may be preventing your EmployerID from working.

I sent to look at my Sent Items tonight and to my surprise I saw another email apparently sent yesterday that I definitely didn't send.

I was astonished to find this as I have just upgraded to Vista in the last 2 days and have sent minimal emails.

Now, thinking about it, shouldn't IE let you know that it is about to send data?

One strange thing is that the email is dated yesterday evening in the Sent list, but when I open the email to view it, it will always have the current date & time - seemingly from the Windows clock.

I am thinking that either

1) this is due to a bug in the new IE & yesterday I visited a website which submitted data via email without my knowledge or

2) this email is an old email that I Imported from backed up email (PST format) from a form I ACTUALLY sent that Internet Mail has redated - maybe something went

I have a database which ultimately will have a couple of thousand records. The primary table has 30+ fields. I have lots of queries and connected reports to show various subsets of the data needed from the table. However, there are times when what is needed is all fields for a specific subset. Because the records sought often need to be filtered by several criteria, I've found the "Filter by Form" option to work well. I have a button on the main dashboard marked "Find Record" that automatically opens a search form in the "Filter by Form" mode. This allows me to enter information into as many controls as necessary, and returns exactly the right records after clicking on "Toggle Filters" on the ribbon. The problem is that ultimately I need to make this "Access-free". The goal is to create an application from the database without ribbons. I've created a button to run the filter, and another one to print the results, but when the search form is open in the "Filter by Form" mode, it greys out the buttons. I understand that there is a GotFocus command or something similar. Can anyone help with specifics, both the syntax of the command and where the command needs to be typed? Thanks a bunch...I look forward to your reply.

Hi All,

I need some help to figure out how to do a project.
i was given a sample tax form from the government that i have to re-create in electronic format. I have to build the form to match their specifications exactly. I've tried to do it in MS Word 2003 using a table, but the when i try to ensure that the tables cells are the same size as that on the paper - the tables keeps either changing the dimensions of the cell or changing the dimensions of other table cells.

the major thing is to ensure that the form i build matched that paper sample exactly - for example i cannot be off by even a millimetre.

In addition to that, my company has extracted the tax data for its 400-500 employees into an Excel Spreadsheet. I have to use the excel spreadsheet to make the "form" i created fillable.

The previos analyst used ms word 2003 and created the form using the drawing menu and text boxes and then mail merged the info in the excel sheet to the word doc.

can someone suggest an easier to do this? i wold be grateful for any help i can get.


Answer:Create Electronic Form to match sample paper form

Welcome to TSG

If I got your meaning correctly, then yes, ther's an easier way.
I'm almost sure that you can create the form in Excel, though setting the exact sizes and positions could be difficult.
I'm absolutely sure that you can create the form in Powerpoint, and with this latter, setting the exact sizes and positions should be much more simple.
Automatically filling the Powerpoint form is also possible.

If you only need to print out the filled forms, or create PDF-s, this Powerpoint-Excel duo might be good for you.
If you need to do further calculations with the filled forms, then I strongly recommend to stick with Excel.

I'm also curious what others can say.

I have a subform which on its own - works beautifully but fails under the mainform. I use a main form to select the record that the end user wants to update. Upon update event on main form, the sub form opens, presenting fields for possible updating. The Sub Form also present 2 buttons - Save & Close or Cancel and Close (Undo). When the main form opens, the code set AllowClose as False. When the sub form is opened as a result of the update on the mainform, the issue is the Close command /code gets canceled. (Error 2501). I have tried: 1. setting AllowClose (true and False) on both forms, 2. only the main form and 3. only the subform. None of these 3 configurations resolves the issue. Also, I tried moving the buttons to the mainform instead of the sub form but that failed as well.

The application has a dozen forms and all of them utilize AllowClose functionality so the end user MUST use the buttons on the forms to force background queries (updates, deletes, perform calculations, recalc control totals etc). This is the first time I have tried to use Allow Close on a subform with buttons.

I have created a data base with two tables. The first table contains a list of students and their personal information. The second table contains student subjects and has many subject records with a relationship to the student record. The relationship key is the student id.

I have created a form that populates with the student information and contains a subform that populates with that students subjects. All of this works great for existing students. I can edit the student information and and new subject records.

Now here is my problem. I would like to create a form that preceeds my current form. The user would input a student number and click search button.

Answer:Access query to open Add form or Edit Form

needaccesshelp, welcome to the Forum.
First a couple of points, you do not need to "save" the record, access does so automatically. Also when creating a New record the subform should be automatically populated with the Student Number, this is controlled by the master child links.

The combo you need is a Find combo which can be created using the combo wizard, that combo can have it's Not In List Property set to yes, which can then be used to trigger adding the student that to the table and then to the form (and combo).

Here is what I'm trying to do.

For lists Equipment in drop down box.
Whatever equipment that is select, the equipment type field needs to be updated from a table.

Is there a way to get a value from SQL statement?

SQL = "SELECT [Equipment Type] FROM OrderDetails Where " _
& " Equipment = '" & Me.Equipment & "'"
[Forms]![OrderDetails]![Equipment Type] = SQL

Answer:Help with access form (insert table value into form field)

Mhouser, if you are trying to "display" a value related to the Combo selection you can have thta value as an extra column in the combo and refer to it with simple VBA.
You should not populate a Field's actual value with that from the combo as that is duplication.
Can you tell me which one you are trying to do?

I'm currently designing a table based website in Dreamweaver, but am having a problem importing a drop down menu in the form of html. It gives me the error "The selected file is not the correct format. Please select a file which was exported from Fireworks".

The problem with this is that all the export options have been set correctly, and is being exported as Dreamweaver HTML, and obviously being exported from Fireworks - so what's the problem? Does anyone have an answer to my problem?

Outlook keeps popping up two download boxes whenever I get email with attachments or that is in HTML format. I played with the trust center to see if I could turn this feature off, but it still pops up every time I open an email from Facebook or from a friend with an attachment in it.

Any ideas?

Can you post a screen shot of these "pop ups"?

I have a form in an application that formerly required the user to click an "Edit" button in order to edit the data. We decided to delete that button and open the form to editing. So I
(a) removed "Event Procedure" from the On Current property that made the form non-editable on open
(b) checked to make sure the "Allow Edits" property was 'Yes'
(b) deleted the "Edit" button

The form will not allow ANY editing. What's wrong?

Answer:Solved: Form won't allow editing

My apologies for taking up space in this forum. After uploading the original message, I went back to the form and deleted EVERY VBA module that said anything about disallowing editing. . . and the form now allows edits. Still don't know why just removing the Event Procedures from the form property box didn't make it editable, but in any case, problem solved.

I have a form that records info from text boxes. I have a cmd button on this form that opens another form (receipt form). Info from certain text boxes in the first form are imported to the receipt form. The problem is that when you open the receipt form by pressing the cmd button- it always defaults to the first record- I want it to open the receipt form with the information from the current form. So- if I have 20 records- and I am working on record 20- want to print out the receipt for record 20- I press the cmd button- and it defaults to record #1- I have to advance to record 20 (in the receipt form)for the info to display- and then print out.

Thanks for any help

I want you to be able to punch in a store number into cell C4 on sheet Form and have it search sheet Data and return the names of the programs (row 1) that have Y in the box. So if I put 5 into the box it would return:

I have a form which i have attache to a query that connected 3 table. My problem is that the form i created was suppose to be set up for added a user to the datebase. When you open the form it is displaying all the info from the query rather then being blank. The interesting part of this is if you go into the propertys of the form it is setup for data entry. Which would blank out the form. Also if you go into the query and uncheck one of the table so it only inputs info into 2 table instead of 3, the form is blank. Now i been trying to figure this thing out all weekend and cant seem to get. Can anyone help me with this issue. i can attach a zip if anyone wants to look at it.Thanks

I have a form set up with a bit of security that locks and unlocks the edit/addition/deletion the main form has all off these locked, the Subforms allow all the time, Locking the main form in essence keeps them all locked. I click a button to allow edits and it sets all the forms to edit/addition/deletion = True
my issue comes into play because all but 1 form will change over. the layout is like this.
Main Form

Tabbed View with 4 tabs
Tab1, Tab2, Tab3, Tab4

Sub1, Sub2, Sub3, Sub4
Sub1 and Sub2 are always locked
Sub3 Is the one that will not unlock
Sub4 has a Subform aswell and on the edit click Both of these allow edit

Tab2, Tab3, Tab4 Are similiar layout with subforms and som of those also have Subforms aswell and all three of these work just fine. Ive been going over this for almost 2 weeks trying to figure it out with no joy.

I was hoping someone may have seen this before and might beable to offer some advice.

I have created a form within a database where users will be keying in information that will be stored. I have an issue. When they use the switchboard to access the form and they click within the first field to enter data, it switches from the little black arrow on the left to a pencil ... and it will not allow me to save the record that i keyed in on the form without clicking on the penicl first, which makes the black arrow appear again ... how do i fix this to where it stays in the data entry mode that allows the users to continue to add records .... i hope this is clear enough ...

I made my form (combining info from related tables in a database), but I can't actually enter data into it.

Hi there, i wounder if you can help. I am ok with Access, but VB code is where i fall down a little. I am trying to create a search form (frmStudentSearch) that is made up of text boxes, a combo box and check boxes. These boxes will form the criteria for my search. I wish to enter in the relevant data uaing such controls and then select a search command that then opens up a results form (frmSearchResults) showing the names of the students who meet that criteria.

Some of the controls though may sometimes be left empty so will be null. i have tried to just link the controls to a query however i am having no such luck. So what i planned to do was to create the code that creates a query based on that certain criteria everytime the code is run (using a command button), each time replacing the previous query. However when i use this method the code i use only works for those fields where numerical data is entered. Any Suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I have attached the database if it makes things easier.Thanks

Hi guys and gals,

I've been given a semi-dynamic form in Access and I need a bit of help modifying it. The form (in design view) has a row assigned to a record in a database. The row contains 54 text boxes that are assigned as controls for fields in that record. So when the form loads there are 10,584(ish) boxes. The control part I'm not having a problem with, I've got that checking for unique values in that row etc etc etc, but the guy that handed it over wants the format of the text box to change some format (such as a change in colour) depending on which number is entered. With the way that the form is layed out this changes the text box in that column for EVERY record. I need a way to uniquely name the boxes in each row, so that I can reference them individually without having to individually create 10,000+ boxes... Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

Many thanks in advance

Hi all,

I work for a legal company and staff often have to complete PDF forms. Many of these can be filled in in Acrobat Reader and printed, but not saved and re-edited.

Therefore, we have some software called PDFill that enables us to save changes to a PDF form, print, re-edit, etc. However, some forms involve numerous calculations (which when edited in Acrobat Reader - are calculated automatically).

Does anyone know of any PDF Form filling software that will enable calculations to be done automatically? (even if I have to set up the formulas myself!)

I need to avoid Acrobat Writer at all costs!

Please Help!
Thanks in advance,

I have attached an example.

How do I go about creating an input query that will append data to an existing table in Access 2007? My table has a 'Code', numeric, field. I want to be able to run the query so that a user can input the particular product 'Code' and get the requested results for all products by that code number. I cannot access most of the tutorials on the web due to access rights which I cannot get around so I need a detailed manner (not code) that will work for the user. I tried a couple of times to do a parameter query by selecting the field, criteria, and typing

Hi all,
I have an application that I didn't write and only partially understand. My fear is that I don't understand it well enough to explain to all of you, but here goes nothing. The gist of it is that users fill in data on a form on an asp page. The "submit" button saves the data to a backend Access table and calls a pdf form which is populated from the corresponding record in the table in FDF format. Everything works swell EXCEPT in Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 (I don't know about the full version of Acrobat 7.0). In any lower version of Acrobat or Acrobat Reader the form comes up, you choose print, and everything's great. In 7.0 the form comes up but without any of the data, which is not particularly helpful. If you set the preferences on 7.0 to open the form from within the browser, nothing ever comes up at all. Does anyone know of any change in 7.0 that would cause this to not work? Please feel free to ask any clarifying questions (I know this is all sort of vague). Thanks!

Hi all,
My problem started a few weeks ago! I caught a Virus and Dr. Web got rid of it as well as some trojan downloaders that Malwarebytes killed.
The virus ruined my Avast as well as Google Chrome - so I installed Avira and Zone Alarm Firewall as well as ZA Forcefield browser. Avira continues to tell me I have a virus and quarantines it. I contacted Avira and they say it looks like a Zone Alarm problem - I contacted ZA - and am still waiting - I also uploaded these to Avira to be checked for a false positive and have not heard back from them either.
I was wondering - if I still have a problem or if this is a false positive?
Here is what Avira's log says on the last catch:

Answer:HTML/Infected.WebPage.Gen HTML script virus

A common attack against the web infrastructure can be the infection of harmless web pages. Some malware changes every HTML file stored on the disc and adds a link (very often an IFrame) to a site hosting malicious code. Other attacks can aim for the web servers and try to insert forwarding to the pages hosted there. The owner of these pages is advised to take them offline. Fix the hole (either on his own PC or on the server), check the pages for infections, clean them and go online again. Infected Web Pages often contain additional Iframe, Object or Script Tags. The Script Tags often contain encrypted Code.Special detection HTML/Infected.WebPage.GenSince Avira is making the detection and you submitted samples, I suggest you wait on a reply from them or follow up by contacting them again with a reminder.See this Avira link for a discussion of a similar report.

Click on 'edit'.
Click on 'change icon'.Find a good icon to use and close all the windows.
Shortcuts are a different type of file according to the computer, so it handles them differently.
