    Default storing information entered from an online form

    This is the situation

    I have an online form that my visitor fills in and they receive a return email thanking them. Can I set up a database or excel sheet automatic from the information input from each visitor to be accessed later. The visitors registered online but I do not have an record of the info stored.

    This would be easy enough to set up...
    At the same time as sending the email, also put their data in a MySQL table. (google MySQL tutorial for how to do this)
    Make sure you also insert their username so you can give them the data at another visit.

    You'd also need to change your file extentions from .html to .php or .asp so that you can use one of these serverside languages to write to the database.

    Please do not post the same thing in two different threads (this one and the paid help one).
    Choose one thread to keep and I'll delete the other.

    Ok, I've deleted your paid request thread.

    As to your question, if you need help with any particular step of this, feel free to ask!
    In my opinion, Tizag's tutorial about MySQL and php is pretty good.

    Maybe you could use FormTools - its free and really easy to use with any html form. The data stored in the db can easily be exported into excel or viewed directly in the backend interface. As well as storing data from html form submissions, it supports an admin account and custom configurable 'client' accounts that can easily input/manipulate data directly into the db backend, if needed : http://www.formtools.org/

    There are loads if addon modules too (mostly free) to expand functionality, such as an addon for recording submission history, one for managing uploads/attachments, and a backup module that us perfect for copying existing form setups and all associated db fields/submissions : http://modules.formtools.org/
