question? I need a little help! I am designing a new webpage, and I have it
basically complete. however I have a part of the "Site" that is like a guest
book, I would like to have the information that is entered go directly to a
ACCESS or XL page on my server. I have no idea how to do this. but rather
then have the information sent to me via say an e-mail to be entered
manually. I would like it to go to either a plain .txt file, .mdb or a .xls
even. something that I can keep a record of all entries, and use later for a
mailing list? I have searched for this in template form, but I must not be
asking for the correct form, but I will also need script I think.I
appreciate any help, or suggestions were to get this kind of information..

newsgroups may provide better answers.
You want a guestbook? Why? For an example of what guestbooks become,
look at this one:
Or worse yet, this one. I'll say I'm sorry in advance. (let's just
say the words, "no tag stripping.")
You mean a page that uses a server-side script to get data from an
Access database, I assume.
What you want is this: A server-side script which displays the
guestbook in its current state, an HTML document with a form whose
action points to a server-side script, and the server-side script to
which the form points to, which processes the form information and
saves them in a database or a text file. You could use a language like
ASP for scripting -- it seems like you are using the Microsoft
I do not have the time to write the script for you or search for a
suitable one on Google, but I hope that that information points you in
the right direction. Many scripts can be found online, there are a lot
of people who mistakenly believe that their sites need guestbooks.
Perhaps you're not one of those who are mistaken, though.
