Where I can find detailed information on the process of sending data from pdf form stored on the website to the sql database stored on web server ?? Where I can find some samples I could use to build my form and related script(s).

Thanks for advice.

Hi Paul,

Thank you very much for your quick response. I can not retrieve your

attachments, so please send them by email. Thank you.

What does it mean that DSN has to be set up on each machine which will run

the form ??? Does it mean for each person who will use the form ?? or

rather once on the server where the form is hosted ??? It will be a bit

difficult to use if it will have to be installed on each user computers as

some users may not be happy to do it. If this is the case do you have any

solution you would recommend which will collect the data from the form

without asking users to do anything special on their computers ????

submit pdf form data to sql database

If you want the form to contact the DB directly you will have to set up a

DSN on each of the machines that will run the form. Note that this wil

only work on Windows machines. Also the form must be launched for the

script to run (you mentioned the PDF was stored on the web server). I have

some samples that show how to deal with a DB but the attachments do not

seem to be working correctly on the forum yet. If you cannot retrieve them

post your email and I will email them to you directly.
