I'm creating a database to capture contact history to my customers.

I have the customers loaded into one table and that is the souce for my main form. I have an additional table for call history, and have created a subform based on this table. I have linked the subform via the common key, which is my customer id.

The problem is that the subform will not allow me to create new records in the history table. It will only display _existing_ customer history records. In fact, if there are no linked records in the history table for a particular customer, the subform doesn't even display.

I know that it's probably some silly setting, and I've encounterd this before, but can't remember how I fixed it.
Help would be greatly appreciated!

I am trying to create a simple form in Outlook, basically I have used one from a mail template, and all I have added is a field (called LOCATION) which sits under the cc field. I have published this etc and all looks ok.

Now when I send my message (using new form) to myself it comes back without the LOCATION field or the actual box next to it (which is what I want users to enter text into?)

Can someone help?

Answer:Creating a form in Outlook?

I'm curious, you mean you've made a form that mimics the standard new mail window? Why would you want to do that? If that's the case then the answer is, of course, when you receive mail you aren't opening the mail item in the form you've created but rather the standard Outlook window. You'd have to make a form that can open email items as well.

I should say that not too many people write code for Outlook and its object model is somewhat limited. I imagine that the enhancements you've made to the standard new mail window could be achieved using native Outlook methods.

I might be way off base here, I'm not an Outlook MVP or power user or anything like that.

I've been assigned to create a word 2007 form. So far I've learnt all about content controls and the different kinds you can insert. However I'm stumped by a particular problem. The form needs an area at the end that reads

"Next Meeting:" then gives the form filler the ability to either select a date and fill out a location, or the option to put something along the lines of "email will be sent out concerning date and location of next meeting".

My first thought was 2 content controls (1 a drop down date chooser, and a rich text one) followed by a drop down menu with the text being the only option. I had hoped to enable the form filling person to delete either the first 2 (if they don't know when and where the meeting will be) or the third 1 (if they do and can fill out that information). However I couldn't find a way to enable the deleting. If anyone could shed some light on the matter, or has a better idea as to how the effect can be created, it would be much appreciated.

I created a travel voucher form in OmniForm 5.1 and would appreciate any help polishing it up. I'm new to OmniForm, so these may be elementary questions to all of you.

1. I want to insert a check box already filled in. I think I need to insert a graphic for this purpose. I didn't find any graphics that shipped with the program, and thus far have not found one to download. Is there a way to have the check box automatically marked? If not, can someone tell me where to get a graphic filled in checkbox? WordPerfect has one, but I couldn't figure out how/where to browse to find it.
2. I created a two column table. The second column is numbers and the final row is the total of the columns. I tried to insert a math function, but couldn't figure it out.
3. I wanted the form to automatically insert the current date in the MM/D/YYYY format. I tried using the function keys, but evidently don't know how to insert them. I typed the function command in the box and it returned it as text.

How would i go about creating this myself? Also any criticism of my party site welcome, we've only been up for 3 months so still at the "development" stage lol!

Answer:Creating a contact form

You could use the same code that you have in your existing website. However, you'll see that the form actio points to a PERL (.pl) script in the CGI-bin folder on the server. You need such a mail script in the CGI-bin of the new server (and amend te code to point at the correct scrit). A popular one is FormMail (use Gogle and find a free download).However, there is a danger (apparently) in using these scripts as they can get hijacked by spammers to send vast amounts of spam and then your ISP may suspend your account. If you know, say, PHP you can write a page that will send such a contact form that doesn't use a separate script in CGI-bin. This would be a safer bet.

Hello. I am trying to create a form in MS Word. It will have a series of questions. It seems like you can not prevent your entries from moving For example, if I type Name: at the top left and then across it, I type date which would be all on the same line. So when I start to type a name, the date entry starts to shift to the right even though I have locked it. It doesn't seem you can make it stop from shifting to the right. I know you can restrict the amount of letters but I would like to see everything really locked in place. But that doesn't seem to be the case. Sentences also will shft downwards as I type. Unless, I'm missing something, I do not see how you can use it as a questioneer when entries move. Hopefully, I am explaing this correct. Thank you

Sorry that this might be hard to explain but here it goes.

I have a form (attached) that the user can insert the Name,Description, PIN #; select a Can Size and multiple Upcharges.
The form creates the record into table DNP.
The query "Items Form" takes DNP records and (will eventually) create total and discounted prices, etc.

Price is determined by Can Size as seen in the Can_Size table and SizePrice query. What I need is for when the user creates the record, the Price goes to DNP table AND/OR just the "Items Form". Price can not be on the form like it is for Can Size and Upcharges (yes I know its in the Can Size combo). I'm pretty stuck.

Any directions or guidance would be greatly appreciated- Thank you!

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 (frmCriteriaResults) showing the names of the students who meet that criteria.

A lot of it i have managed to complete, and i have done so by applying code that creates a query everytime, and then with this query it opens the results in the form.

My issue is that there are a few fields that come up with an error but where the same code is used some dont. i think it might be because those that arent working are text fields and the others are numeric fields.

The next issue is with one of the fields i want to search by. i have a text box called age. I want the user to be able to enter an age, and then using the same process as above, sorts the students stored that are of that age.

I have attached the database as it might help to understand what i mean. The issues are highlighted in RED. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

First off, I should let it be known that I am pretty much a newbie when it comes to javascript. I've only recently begun learning HTML and CSS and javascript. My HTML and CSS skills are adequate to create the site the I need to. It's my javascripting skills that need work and I am certain that that is the core problem here.

I have a few different things I need my form validation script to do. I want it to check my zip code field to make sure the zip code is in the proper format. I eventually want to extend that to validate the phone and fax number fields as well but I'm starting small. I need it to also validate the email address field to make sure a properly formatted email address is present. I then need it to check all the required fields to make sure they are not empty.

I have found scripts on the internet to do all three of those, my problem is I don't know how to string them all together. I have the overall validation script working(the one that checks the fields to make sure they are not empty). I was just wondering if I could get some help incorporating the number and email address validation scripts into that.

I completely realize that my very limited understanding of javascript at this point is the problem. I'm still learning it and I know I need to understand that I'm not going to learn it overnight. HTML and CSS was fairly easy and quick to learn for me. Javascript is proving a bit more difficult. It's probably becaus... Read more

Answer:Creating a form validation script

I would try updating the validate function like this first:
function validate() {
if(document.contactform.Contact_name.value=='' ||
document.contactform.Company_name.value=='' ||
document.contactform.Address.value=='' ||
document.contactform.Address_type.value=='' ||
document.contactform.City.value=='' ||
document.contactform.State.value=='' ||
document.contactform.Email_address.value=='' ||
document.contactform.Phone_number.value=='' ||
document.contactform.Contact_method.value=='' ||
document.contactform.How.value=='' ||
alert('Please fill out the fields marked with a red asterik before submitting this form.');
} else {
That way, the validate function would take care of everything. (Replace zipcode with the name of the form element to contain the zipcode. I wasn't sure if it was given.)

I would also remove the HTML script tag from the end of the valzip function.

I've never done a form in NOF before. All I need is a smallish and simple form on a page. It should say 'sign our petition' then have space for name , email and address - to be sent back to webmaster. Try as I might I can't understand the terminology used - could anyone (adeh? barryoneoff?) just tell me in simple English the process? I have read the help files, honestly!

Answer:creating a form in NOF - in plain English!

Hi mco.Never done a form in NOF? Oh, don't worry. Easy (must be if I can do it...)Form layouts are tricky to get aligned cleanly without using either a table or placing the form objects in text boxes. Make sure first of all that the form toolbar is selected from the View menu (place it next to the standard toolbar).Next, tick the "layout is a form" box on the pallette.You can use a table for best control, or just use the text boxes that you need for the labels.Make a text box with the name of your first form field in it, such as First Name. Now make a single line form field and drop it into the texk box; it will now be below the text, as long as your text box is not too long.Go to the properties pallette for the form field; give it a name that represents its content, such as firstname. Note the lowercase and lack of spaces. Give it a visible and maximum size.Repeat for your other fields. I would suggest First Name, Surname, E-mail Address, House number, and so on.Next, add a submit button. Ignore the form handler on the NOF tools menu. Your submit button will need an action in its properties pallette; this will be the name of your PHP file, which I can help you to code later on. In fact, once you have your form arranged, tell me the names of each field and I'll code it for you.

I'm trying to make up a little form to allow people to email me ticket order for our local theater.

I haven't been able to determine how--in forms or VBA code--make a field an integer. The default is textbox, and try as I might, I'm not smart enough to make it be an integer. I need to add values in a bunch of boxes, and of course it just concatenates.

Now, every time I open the word doc it asks me whether or not to enable macros, which I guess are part and parcel of this programming--but not intentionally. Yes my ignorance is showing. Anyway, I guess the macros make it impossible to upload my document, and I wonder then if they will make it impossible to have this form go through emails.

Could some one point me in the right directions?

Hi there

I have been slaving away for 4 hours trying to figure this out but with no success. I have created a form in Access called TblQryDepositForm. I have then created a sub form called TblDepositsSubForm.

Underneath the Sub Form I have created a text box and in the text box I have the formula = Sum([DepositAmount]). Deposit amount is the name of the field that I want to total.

In the TblQryDepositForm, I created a text box and in it I put the formula

First things first, if im in the wrong place, tell me and I will move the post.
Right, here is where i,m at. I have put together a basic HTML page using notepad++, its very simple and is only performing a simple task, to provide 2 positions with update information. It works by sharing a folder in the C: drive of the "host" pc with the 2 "slaves". When every we need to update the information we just edit the relevant text in notepad++ save it and then the 2 browsers auto refresh every 5 minutes to collect the latest data. Obviously scrolling through a raw HTML doc to find the bits which need changing isn't very user friendly for my colleques so......
I am aiming to put together a database in access, link it to a VB10 form (already created) upon submitting the form the DB will update and the HTML will pull the information from the data base.
So, ref; the latter paragraph:
1= Is this possible
2= IS there a better/simpler way of doing it
3= how to you get html to input information from access automatically? OR is excel better, or neither. Im asking a lot i know, but :)

Answer:Creating a form to update page

I think you've asked for help with this problem in another forum area, and I believe I may have responded with information about file synchronising software.
Forgive me, but I can't help the feeling that you're over-complicating this process. That may be because I'm not fully understanding the problem.
Why can't you just create a master file on your host PC and get some readily available software to synchronise the updates to the copies on the other PCs every five minutes or so? That way there's no need to get involved with HTML at all - you could do it easily in an Excel workbook.
This doesn't really belong here in the Web design forum, so I'm going to move it to the Tech helproom.

Answer:Problem with frontpage creating a form

I suspect that you have named a field/s with a description that suits you but not Front Page. If you right-click each field and choose 'Form Field Properties' check the value in the 'Name' box. This should start with a letter and, if more than one word, should not have any spaces between them - use an underscore to join words up, i.e. Visitor_URL.

Answer:Creating Membership Form in Dreamweaver?

This isn't trying to be difficult but do you want a membership form where people submit membership registration or is this a feedback form for people to contact you where they can select various preconfigured options in the process ?Membership systems are typically used to register users for restricted content.Getting a user registered is relatvely easy. Protecting the content you want to restrict is a lot more involved.A form handler script can process a form and email the results of it to here for a very popular CGI form handler, or try and search for a form handler in PHP or CGI, which are the most likely languages your web host will support.

Answer:Creating a subscription form in Dream Weaver

Hey buddy I will help you out. HTML (as far as I know) can't send an email alone, unless you are doing some kind of newage HTML5 stuff with that action="formtoemail:" bit, I only know of doing it using PHP or something similar.

what you would do is make is something like action="somePhpSendMailFile.php"

and inside of that file you would send the mail with the mail() function

if you can't get it figured out let me know

I'm creating an email form in Outlook 2007, and I'd like to create default "to:" and "cc:" values. However, when I'm looking at the Message tab under "Edit Compose Page", the "last, first" format is rejected when I type in an address. Likewise the [email protected] format. When I alternately go to the (All Fields) tab and try to edit the Field Properties for "To", the dialog box is grayed out.

I'm guessing I'm going about this the wrong way, and I'm hoping that this is something I'm able to do. Is there another way to do this?

Thanks a lot.

Hey folks!

I need help big time. I am in the eleventh hour of creating a really complex database for a buddy of mine and I am in need of a special task.

I need a form the user can use to create a whole NEW table with predefined fields.

For example:

The user needs to track a particular brand of item. So with this db they will have a whole table just for that brand of item. Lets assume the user has a new brand they need to add so they go to this form, they select a name for the table and then the user clicks a create button. Then a new table is created with fields that have been predefined by me. Then using another form the user can make changes to they new table.
What I need help with is how I can use a form to create the table.

I hope what I am asking was a little more clear than mud, lol.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Basically I created a table with different fields of course, then a form for that table that the data can be viewed on or updated in. Now I am trying to create a separate form that when I click a search button it will open up that form and display the data based on what I searched for. The problem is I have multiple search fields, some which contain Null values. The problem I am having and wasn't sure if I could do this, but I basically want it to search the table using this expression Like "*" & [Forms]![Test]![Text0] & "*" in my query for each of my fields but ignore a null value in the form I am searching with. When I put Is Null or Like... it gives me all of the entries. So I need it to ignore if the search fields on the 2nd form if they are blank. If I just use Like "*" & [Forms]![Test]![Text0] & "*" for each field in the query except changing to Text2, etc it filters down to nothing. If I include the is Null and only search based on one criteria it gives me the ones that meet that criteria plus all of the others that have null in those fields. I created a small database so I could try to figure out what is wrong with another one I am doing for my company that is rather big. At the bottom is the SQL for it when I just use the Like "*" & [Forms]![Test]![Text0] & "*" statements. I tried some IIF statements also but I am beginning to think I can't make it where I ignore the fields ... Read more

Answer:Creating a Form to search in Access 2003

I have many databases with search forms doing just what you want. The key is in the "criteria row structure to get you going on the correct SQL if SQL is the way you want to do it.
This SQL is for mixing and matching up to 3 fields and a "controlling" "option" column.
SELECT tblVisits.PtKey, tblVisits.VisitDate, tblVisits.odIOP, tblVisits.osIOP, tblBAsic.DOB, [PtFirstName] & " " & [PtLastname] AS Name, tblBAsic.Diagnosis, tblVisits.[Diagnostic Update], DLookUp("[Option]","[Option]") AS Expr1, tblVisits.Comment

I'm working on a database where I would like to do the following:

In a form, I have a drop down box with 3 options, what i want to do is that when the user selects one of the 3 options, then from another drop down box, a list is displayed (for the user to select) relevant to the one chosen from the first drop down box i.e. combo box has 3 options (i.e. premiership, championship, league 1), if the user selects premiership, than from the next box, they have the option to select only those in the premiership, likewise, if they chosed championship, than they have the option to select only those in the championship.

I can create drop down boxes but just want to know how to create the above based on what is chosen from the first combo box.

Hi all,

I am a beginner to MS Access. I was trying to create a form in Access which has 3 combo boxes on it, with each of them having the data on accountname, report type and date respectively. This data comes from 3 tables which are two column tables with one filed being the primary key one and the other fiield having the say accountname as type Text and so on. The form has the functionality that as a user chooses a particular combination of accountname, report type and date from the 3 combo boxes and clicks on a button titled 'Display report' the respective pdf file opens up. These pdf files are stored in a particular folder and are named as a concatenation of 'accountname+reporttype+date'. The form also needs to have a button clicking on which the user can close the form.
Any directions members !

Also could anyone explain me what actually a query is and what relationship does it have with a form. I have some idea about this but i am still not fully clear about these concepts.

Howdy...I am new at using macros and am in TAFE at the moment. I have created a macro to prompt the user of a form to name the file before it is sent to a specific folder on C Drive. The input selection box works and the "named" file is directed where it is supposed to go, but I am also required to close the "active document" after it is saved, still using this macro and this comes up with a "debugging" error and won't run. The line is highlighted in yellow (I am using Office XP) and the document won't close. I have tried using different prasing but still can't get it to work. Is this because it is a form, a Win XP foible or I am exceptionally stupid!!!

I am creating a form for data input into an excel spreadsheet. The form just captures mail sent/received and the first text box is to be a unique number for every entry.

Is there anyway that I can code the text box so that it puts in a unique number everytime a new record is added?

I have attached my draft spreadsheet - it isn't finished yet as the next stage is to get excel to open automatically to the form.


Answer:creating autonumber in excel 2007 user form

In your UserForm_Initialize:

LastNumber = Application.Max(Sheets("MailRecords").Columns(1))
txtNumber = LastNumber + 1

Although ideally you should leave txtNumber off the form altogether. Just have Excel figure out new "Last Number" at the "Add Record" stage, thereby eliminating user "interference". IMO.

I need to create a document that allows a user to enter text, and then save and print the document at the end. I'm aware the PDFs are frequently used for entering and printing text, but because of software limitations I've decided to attempt this using MS Word.

With a bit of googling I've managed to get Word to do everything I need, apart from one thing, and I'm drawing a blank with it on google. Largely because it's quite a complicated/specific task to try and search for.

Basically I've enabled the 'developer' tab in Word and used this to insert text boxes. Then I've used the 'review' tab to protect the document and allow the user to only fill in forms. What I want to do is to have the user's name appear on each page of the document, without them having to type it more than once.

The obvious way to achieve this would appear to be to insert a text box that they can edit in the header of the document. However, once the document has been protected they are unable to select any text boxes in the header in order to enter data.

So, I'm wondering is it possible to insert a value into the header of the document that would pull the the data that has been input into the 'name' textbox and display it in the header, so that it will appear on every page when the document has been printed. I guess that this is similar to the way in which the Page X of Y type command, although slightly more complex.

hello all

I am having trouble with something that seems like it should be so simple! I need to recreate a form for my boss that she only has in hard copy. I am using a table and removing the borders so that everything is straight in the form that people will need to fill in. I need to put a place for people to write on, like a line, and each cell will need text then a line. I tried using the underscore but it comes out looking spotty, meaning there are spaces between each underscore.

there has to be a better way of doing this? I have never recieved any formal education with regards to word 2003, so all I know I've learned by trial & error but I can't seem to figure this one out.

I can't access photobucket or anything like that, so I can't add a screenshot. Basically it needs to look like this:

Answer:Creating a PDF form that links directly to an Excel spreadsheet everytime its filled

Using Adobe won't be easy and you have two much easier options IMO. The first option is to create a Word document and embed form fields and other controls on the document itself along with a submit button. The button click event would trigger the macro code to get fired which would transfer the values.The other option is to create a custom form using the VBA form builder which is built into all MS Office applications. Both methods would require some basic macro coding but is not difficult at all. You just need to decide which method you want to use.

For some reason you've bought a special domain name and set up yet another site to do this - why have you done that?It sounds to me as if the form is submitting itself to a different server directory - one on which you don't have write permissions, so the server is issuing what we used to call an NT challenge, the type you get when you logon to a network workgroup.Perhaps if you could give me a step-by-step explanation I'll be able to sort this out for you.

Hey there folks! I had an issue with clearing fields and that was resolved but the resolution presented another problem. A problem which I have been unsuccessful in resolving on my own.

I have tried about 3 different methods using command buttons and the VBE but nothing is working.

I need 2 buttons: One to clear all form fields and one to clear all form fields then close the form.

I know how to make a button to close a form but I am unable to make it clear the fields prior to closing. I have also been unsuccessful in creating a button to simply clear the form fields.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Question: Creating a Website


I have been considering creating my own website and have a few questions, since I am new to this.

-What is the best way to find a web host for my site (are there any sites that has reviews about the positives and negatives of individual web site hosts) ?

-When it comes to advertising on my website, how do I attract companies to advertise on my website and how can I figure out what to charge (by the click, size of the ad, or by any other means, and how do I decide what to charge compared to other websites in a related field).

- How can I scan my web page for any type of virus / spyware / hackers?

I am very new to this and would appreciate any help from anyone who has their own website or has knowledge in this field. If anyone could give me any suggestions or even a website that has information in detail for creating a website would be much help. Sorry for my English, it is not my first language but I am trying my hardest to learn.

Thank you!!

Ok so I've decided to creat a website...I already have a small one using a free hosting (yahoo) and domain ( website is want to start building on that. With that in mind, does anyone know of a good (and cheap) host and domain? I'm thinking about using as a host and going through for my domain--total price of this is 65.00 a year...thanks for any advice!

Answer:Creating a website???

Personally, I use

I've had only two problems of thier making - one being a small hack that allowed another user on the server to host files on my domain (nothing major - just annoying and was resolved almost as soon as I told them about it), the other was a DNS error at their end, which was reset within an hour of telling them and was then just a case of waiting for the DNS to propagate.

Both were resolved very quickly using their online ticketing system, and I've found their basic package to be quite generous for the price.

click here for a lightweight tutorial about creating user membership facilities. You may prefer to make use of a framework, such as CodeIgniter (which I rate as the best, particularly for newbies). If anyone tells you to use .htaccess, it's best avoided.Regarding file downloads. That's trivial unless you intend to permit user uploads as well. Then it gets serious.

Can anyone recommend a simple 'idiot-proof' place to start building my website?
I have got the domain name and the site is live. I have heard Wordpress is easy, but after looking at it, I am not sure!
I just want to put a few photos on it and some blogs of everyday life. I would like to have some cartoon characters on it as my child is going to feature on it too (is this flash?).
I do not know html or anything complicated.
Any advice or links would be appreciated.

Start with wordpress. Its very simple, yet has lots of customization, you should be very happy with it.

I have never done this before so if anyone can help with some simple instructions I would be most grateful.
Do I first type all the info in a word document? If so, then how do I transfer the info into a website?
It is friends who need this and I would like to help them but I don't know how to do it as never done this before.
Do they have to pick a domain name/site to host first?
Any advice gratefully received.

Afternoon chaps,

A friend and I have just purchased a website and are currently in the process of attemtpting to set it up and create something we're not overly sure how to at the moment. On the face of it our idea is quite simple (without giving too much away for privacy reasons), we intend to take a bunch of videos each day, store them on a computer or somewhere, then somehow users will be able to access and edit these videos through the website. Ok, not entirely simple, but there must be a way it can be done so I thought you guys would be a good place to start.

The complicated bit comes when the videos taken will only remain on the computer for a certain amount of time (eg. 30 days), and all the uploading needs to be done automatically rather than manually. Finding this quite hard to explain without giving anything away! I'll try running you through the process from scatch. Say we take 3 videos every day and each lasts and hour. They're stored on my computer under a dated folder and, for storage reasons, there's only 30 folders (one for each day) so on the 31st day the first folder gets overwritten again and the videos in that folder get replaced (much like CCTV storage). Somehow these videos need to be linked to our website (obstacle 1). It is possible to upload them manually everyday, but we need this process to be automatic. Forget bandwidth and other costs for the moment we're just looking to see if it's at all possible before we go into... Read more

I have been trying to figure out a way to create a FTP Website. I am wanting to make it so others can access my "Music" folder and listen to what is in there at will. Though, I do not want to grant them access to anything else. Simply listening/downloading my music.

I have had a friend help me who is good at these kinds of things, and he could not figure out why it wasn't working right. I have also tried to find a few websites regarding the subject, but they where either for Windows XP or the wrong version of Vista.

Basically, I am either looking for a website with a step-by-step tutorial of creating a working FTP site, or someone with the knowledge to help me.

If there is anything you need to know about my computer, please ask. I wasn't sure what was all needed information wise to gain your guys help.

Also, if this is in the wrong forum, I am sorry. I wasn't quite sure where to place this.

Hi all.

I am using WebEasy Professional 6 to design my website. I have inserted a form on my 'contact us' where clients can submit comments, however these comments display in html format when I view it in my inbox (Microsoft Outlook). Does anyone have any suggestions to correct this? Thanks!

Answer:Form on website displaying comments in html

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.

Answer:Insert an image into a website message form

Well, not if the message doesn't allow html or bbcode. I'm guessing from the screenshot that the box only allows text. The best you can do is ascii art (assuming it aligns properly) or text smilies.

I have this online form of sorts that has a bunch of Site names in the first column and then a box next to it that needs the site code that matches the name. I have the master list in Excel which is a good 1000 sites with their codes. Is there any software that will look at the text then search a list and plug in the number or is that only possible with some kind of cgi or sql thing.

Answer:Website form filler, not for passwords and stuff

I don't know of any software that will do this for you, but it may be possible to write an Excel macro to do it??

You'd have to elaborate on what you're doing for us to help you further. What's a "site code"? Is it an arbitrary code for the website? Its IP address?
