    Help with HTML forms

    Hello All,

    I'm new to the forum, and have a couple questions about some forms I'm working on (http://www.pacificmanagement.com/questionnaire.htm):

    1. How can I make my form split up between two pages? I have it split in half, but right now I receive two emails, which is a real hassle.

    2. How can I put the date on the email that I get from the form, showing exactly when the filled it out? Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks for the help guys,
    Ian

    The email(s) you receive should show the time it was sent.

    Don't understand what you want to have on the "2nd page" of the form. You may have the "emailing code" on both pages - I didn't see the second page.

    Those "required item" asterisks should be colored red so they stand out on the page - a user friendly technique.

    what serverside language do you use?

    If you use PHP there's these things called super global variables that could solve your problem... tell me if you want help (if you use PHP).

    The date problem I can also solve... if you use PHP

    Derek, I highly suggest NOT using Super Globals...

    Not many people have upgraded to php 4.1.x yet, alot are still 4.0.6 and lower.

    This means that you need to use $HTTP_*_VARS, not the new super globals..
