Andre, Have your form action point to a page that has your database storage code, and nothing else (no screen output at all!). Have this page start with the <?php tag with nothing above the tag (no html and no blank lines either!). Once your storage is complete, then use the header("location: somepageyouname") to go to the page you have next in line. Oh, and make sure to use the ?> to end your php code.
Once you get the above to work, then you can add decision statements which will help qualify your data. (e.g. if (!isset($name)) die ("You need to fill in your name. Use the browser's back button and input this information.");). Hope this helps, Hugh ----- Original Message ----- From: "Michael Kimsal" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> To: <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>; <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent: Tuesday, March 05, 2002 1:15 PM Subject: [PHP] Re: Is there a "GoTo Page" Function? > Andre Dubuc wrote: > > > As a complete newbie to PHP, and relative novice to html, this one has me > > stumped.
