Subject: [PHP] Help please: Unable to get $_POST["variable"]; to work in a form.

I am going through the introductory tutorial on and am
stuck on this page:

I have been able to get all of the examples up to this point to work.

The form is simple: it asks for a text "name", a text "age" and has a submit
button. The information is submitted to action.php.

Action.php contains this code:
Hi <?php echo $_POST["name"]; ?>.
You are <?php echo $_POST["age"]; ?> years old.

I saved action.php as a text file with only the information above.

When I enter JoeBob into the name field and 27 into the age field, I get
this for output:
Notice: Undefined index: name in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\action.php on line 1
. You are
Notice: Undefined index: age in c:\inetpub\wwwroot\action.php on line 2
years old.

What can I do to remedy this?
