Emailing a form from a website.

Question: Emailing a form from a website.


I need to find out how to set up an online query or enquirey form (i have this already made in html), then, the part i cant do - when the "send" button is pressed, the info that was entered into the form needs to be emailed to my adress, and not displayed onto the website. so if anyone knows how to do this it would be a great help.

I dont know much HTML and dont know any other coding although it doesnt have to be just html.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've tried to set up quite a detailed FORM on the site below. It is important to have this amount of detail on the FORM which is located in the "Contact Us" page.I'm using Dreamweaver MX and have managed to get the first 3 entry lines to be sent by email. These are First Name - Last Name - and Address.I'm not an HTML techie and dont understand code at all. I'd hoped that Dreamweaver would be idiot proof and allow this to all work for me without me having to get clever. Best laid plans etc.There is a "mailtemp.txt" file which is synch'd both on the rremote and local servers (hence the email actually arriving) but I cannot get the entire FORM to submit.Any thoughts or advice greatly here Entry pageclick here page where FORM is located.Cheers folksPaul

First - give your pages titles!!! untitled page at the top of the browser looks awful.Emails. Form page has first 3 fields named - Name, address etc.the rest are textfield3, textfield4 etc.These names must be on the mailtemp.txt file also. Are they?

Hi All

I have run across two minor problems.

1. My form will not fill the whole screen, just about but not quite. I can drag it to the top of the screen and it fits good, otherwise it leaves about a 7 mm gap between the top of my form and the top of the screen.
I have Auto redraw set to true. my height is set at 9000 and the width is set at 12000. I would like it to fill the whole screen.

2. I had my faxing problem solved, but my friend got a new computer and is now running Win.XP with office XP and I can't get it to email directly from vb. It goes to outlook and I have to send it from there.

Like always any suggestions as how to fix these minor problems are greatly appreciated.

Hi. Ive got a very simple two field form on my contact page which I want to have sent to me when the website user clicks submit. I know this is always a mine-field, getting cgi scripts to work etc etc. I'm currently struggling with matts script archive's send mail but getting the notrorious "CGI ErrorThe specified CGI application misbehaved by not returning a complete set of HTTP headers."Anyone know of an easier way, or an extension for Dreamweaver to simply do this? Or otherwise what I should check is wrong with my sendmail script?

Answer:Webpage emailing form

There are several Dreamweaver extensions that offer email handling [of a sort] that I know of. Examples are NeXTensio2 combined with PHAkt2 which rely on using server behaviours [PHP, ASP, ColdFusion etc] while others are basic, pre-built PHP forms. A quick search on the Macromedia Exchange for the word email in the Dreamweaver section will return a few possibilities. Most of them cost though.To get your FormMail script to work properly at a basic level you need to include these fields in your form:<form name="form1" method="post" action="/cgi-bin/"> <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" />The first section is obviously the location of the script on your web server. The second assigns a subject to all emails sent from the form, the thrid redirects people who submit the form to a 'Thank you' page and the fourth should contain the email address of the person to receive the emails.The script itself needs minimal adjustments in most cases for basic operation. Make sure the first line in the FormMail script is correct - get this information from your web host:#!/usr/bin/perl The next uncommented line is the address of your email program script on the server - again, get this information from your web host, but i...

Hi there

Just wondering if there are any experts out there on this.

I have a 'contact us' form on one of my webistes -

I had someone send me a message using this form, but they used a fake email when they filled it out.

This message I believe is from someone that is very close to crossing the line for stalking, but because they sent it through this form I cannot say for sure that it was them that sent it.

The message was very threatening - both in threatening to ruin my business as well as threatening bodily harm.

So I am trying to see if there is any way of being able to trace who sent the message through this form.

Is there anyone that has any knowledge on this that could help me with this please.

Answer:Problem with Frontpage form on my new website

is it the standard Windows server challenge - the type you see when you want to logon to a network?You'll need to explain your system in more detail. As I understand it you have a site that's entirely Flash, and you want to send customer's payments from it to your PayPal account, is that right? 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.

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.

Hey guys - got an issue I'm totally stumped with:

I have a customer I support on Office 365 and have done for the last 6-8 months. Their website is less than spectacular but does include a booking form for enquires (car rental company)

I have no control over the website but am talking to the guy who has access to the site and domain panel for the company.

From my understanding, when a customer fills in the form and clicks submit, the web server hosting the site and form sends out a confirmation email to the customer and to the [email protected] email address for the company - for this to work the domain has to allow both the website and the office 365 email address to send emails - to allow this to work, this needs an TXT/SPF record allowing both servers to send email using the domain (please correct me if this is wrong!)

We had the same issue a few months ago, in the end we created an SPF/TXT record that combined the webserver and the 365 exchange server, it took a few hours to finalize but it did seem to resolve the issue.

For some reason in the last few days, the form has stopped working again, the customer doesn't receive a confirmation email, nor does the [email protected] address - the only thing I can thing of is that the domain is not allowing the webserver to send email or something to that nature.

I have submitted test bookings which have gone nowhere and had no response to any address, however if I just send emails to the [email pro... Read more

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.

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.

The subject is "Form posted from Microsoft Internet Explorer." & is sent to a Hotmail account. The attachment is a POSTDATA.ATT. When I look at this file in txt format it has info such as one of my email addresses, my website & description - as if I had filled out a web form & pressed Submit.

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'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.

Hi all. I do have another post going but do not want to cram so many questions in one post. (Hope that this is an acceptable practice )Anyway, my Sony desktop crashed the other day. I had a new Hard Drive installed and recovery disks were used. PC is good to go. Trying to tweek it back to the way I am used to having it.QUESTION:I had a form filler program called ROBOFORM on this PC before it crashed. I had MANY years of passwords and stuff saved there.When I brought this PC to the Geek Squad at Best Buy the other day to see if the PC could be repaired, I was told the hard drive went. They were, however, able to make a disk with my ROBOFORM passwords. I can not get the disc to open the list of passwords. It asks me where I want to open the and give me a list of choices. (Paint, notepad, adobe etc.) None of them will run/open the files so I can see them.This was a program that I paid for. How can I make the disc start to fill my forms again when I am at certain sites? (Gee, hope I am making sense)I just realized I never downloaded the ROBOFORM program onto this pc.  Does that have anything to do with the disc not opening??If I go and download ROBOFORM, how does it know who I am. How will it know about the disc full of passwords? How do they recognize each other?HELP PLEASE..........My Passwords are VERY important to me.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 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 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.

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.

Answer:Action Canceled - Using AllowClose on Form and Sub Form - Access 2007

Why not just use a listbox to display the records based on the selection on the main form? I don't think you can actually close a sub-form on a main form since it is tied to the main form.

I have this small database I am converting from A97 toA2010. I created a new A2010 db and pulled over objects I needed. Everything is tested out and working fine.

So I have a table called tblSign_In which has UID autonumber, and the employees name. Thiswill be the user names for the drop down of the Main Switchboard.

I have a table called SHEET LIST that list all the data Ineed to display. This will end upholding tens of thousands of records of information about drawing. I added to this table a field called theLogInID field (UID) to link back to the tblSign_IN, and the correct number andcombination.

I am a new user to Access 2010. My operation system is Window 7.
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. If that student number exists on the student data base then the form that I created should open populated with the student data and their subjects and allow the user to update it.

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).

This ought to be pretty simple to do. I have a small table that contains contact information for a number of businesses: name, address, etc. I have an “ID” field that is an auto number and is the PK. I have created another table that contains the business name, date of a donation and a memo field to hold the donation info (since it’s stuff instead of money.) In the second table, “ID” field is also an auto number and is PK. I have related the tables with a one to many: theoretically one business with many possible dates/donations which is the basic premise. I created a main form to input the business data and created a sub-form for the donation data based on their respective tables.

I am using Windows 2003 with Access 2003. I have a main form that uses fields from a table that I would call the Master table, and this form has several tab pages in it. In this form the 2nd tabbed page uses a subform which displays data from a different table (I call it the Job Number table). I have linked these two tables with a one to many relationship. One of the fields in the Job Number table is named "Contract Amount". So each job record in the Job Number table tracks a separate Contract Amount value, but it is linked to the Master table through the one to many relationship. My goal is to sum all of the the Contract Amount values for each linked Master record and display that amount on my 1st tab.

I have created a subform that uses a sumquery which sums the Contract Amounts from the Job Number table. I tested the subform and the sum feature against the live data, and it does perform correctly. I then added that subform into my main form on the first tabbed page along with other fields on the same tab page. These other fields come from the Master table. In the Data Entry view, I can see a box where the subform should display, but the data doesn't display. What can I do to force the subform to display data along side the other fields from the Master Table?

Some program has been trying to send out emails from my computer. I can see my AVG scanner showing up a POP3 email alert with IP address 194. etc.
I've blocked ports 25 and 110 with my firewall as I don't use these and have attached a HijackThis log.
Have run virus tests and spyware tests (AVG and Norton), which haven't turned up with anything yet.

Any ideas on what it could be ?

Question: Emailing


What is the reason that pictures or attachments that other people send to me will not go through if I want to send them on to someone else? This just started around 5 or 6 months ago.

I used to be able to send things that other people send to me--but not anymore. I do not recall resetting my computer another way.

Since McAfee updates my computer every other day, I can't forward anything with pictures. I have got so I don't care if I read emails or not. Can you help?


email address removed for safety reasons



It would be good to remove your email address from your post, spammers can pick that up.

Is that Hotmail address the one you are having problems with? Is Hotmail accessed through the website or do you use Outlook Express with it?

Temporarily disable McAfee and see if you can send pictures. Also if you are using a firewall. If one of these is causing the problem, look for adjustments.

Question: Emailing pdf

I downloaded adobe reader x in order to read a screenplay I've written. It has to be sent in on pdf. I emailed it to myself to see how it looks, I can't open file, only view it. I can open in on my docs. in pdf. How come it won't open if I email it to myself. Will the person I email it to have the same problem. I have microsoft officeword 2007Edit: Moved topic from Vista to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Answer:Emailing pdf

It sounds as if you're trying to save a Word document as a PDF file. You can do that in 2007. Open your Word document, click on the Office button, choose Save As, and choose PDF. The window that opens will prompt you to name the document, giving you a default location where to save it. You'll see in the File Type area that it will be saved as a PDF. The file will then be able to be read by anyone who has Acrobat Reader or any other PDF reader when you email that particular document to them.

Also run SpyBot, Adaware or similar.

Question: emailing a pic

How do I set my default email program to 'yahoo'?
When I go to email a pic from my pictures library, it says it can't because I don't have a default email client set up.

Answer:emailing a pic

You set up default, by typing default in search. Then going to the appropriate setting in default programs. .

But I do not know if you can do this with Yahoo

You could set up the email client. To use Yahoo on the client you may need the pay service.
Yahoo is web mail; however, I have heard that you may be able to use it with Yahoo Messenger.

If you want to set up a client go to Windows Essentials and download Windows Live Mail.

Answer:web & emailing

Hi there.

Outlook Express no longer supports Hotmail. Seeing as Microsoft owns Outlook Express and Hotmail, this will not be fixed. You are going to have to use Windows Live Mail if you wish to continue receiving your email on your computer instead of online.

Question: DVD Emailing

I would like to send some short "snippets" from a family dvd, to a member of family abroad, by email. I know somebody will have the answer....please can I have it? - preferably in easy terms!!

Answer:DVD Emailing

i doubt if you would be able to send much through the mail due to size alternative would be to upload chunks to something like a yahoo briefcase, and e-mail the username and password to it to allow access for download from the other end.

Question: emailing video

I would like to email a short video to a friend. I believe it has run on Windows Media Player. Each time I try to send it, it comes back as undeliverable, too large.

Is there a method or tool to compress it? Would it be better to download it to youtube and link to it?



Answer:emailing video

Sounds like it would be easiest to upload it to either YouTube and link to it, or put it on a file hosting site and link who you wish to it. (You do not have to share it with everyone).

You could make a DVD disc, and send it on.....or,

Here are a couple online file storage places....these are not file sharing apps, and they are legal to use, provided you are not working with copyright protected files or video. If found that you are the hosting site itself will of course pull the account and material.

It's all in their Help or FAQ's.....

Currently 4shared sets a 100 MB size limitation per file.

before with outlook express i was able to switch identities under file but now i can only seem to do it through the address book and the two identities mail are going to the same inbox.....can you help me?

Answer:trouble with emailing

Without deleting all idenities and starting over you might try this. If it doesn't work I'm not sure what else to tell you.
Inbox Repair Tool for correcting most problems with damaged Personal Folders .pst files:
If you do not see the Inbox Repair Tool on the Start menu, under Programs Accessories / System Tools, use Start / Find to search your system for Scanpst.exe.
When you run Scanpst.exe, it performs a number of tests.
If it finds errors, it asks whether you want to make a backup copy of the original file
Always say Yes
Then it tries to correct the errors.
For seriously corrupted PST files, try running Scandisk.exe
Look under Programs / Accessories / System Tools first
Then run Scanpst.exe, repeating 3-4 times until neither program returns an error.
We've known this technique to restore data that the user though was lost forever.
If the file is on an NTFS volume, you can't use Scandisk.exe so easily.
One approach, for Windows 2000, is to open the drive in My Computer and use the Tools menu commands to scan the disk.
You may need to restart Windows for the scan to run.
If that doesn't do it, you can try our tips to repair a 2gb Personal Folders file or Offline Folders in Microsoft Outlook.
