beginner having trouble with forms

P: n/a
ed
i'm having trouble with a form. I want to be able to type in the address of
the form with the data for the form items in the URL (ie:
http://somesite.com/formpage.html?fi...&field2=data2).

It saves the data if I type it in manually to an html file. But it won't do
that if I use the URL notation above. How do I get it to do this. The HTML
for the form is below.

Thank in advance,
ed

<html>

<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="application/x-www-form-urlencoded">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 5.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<title>Record</title></head>

<body>

<form method="POST" action="--WEBBOT-SELF--"
onSubmit="location.href='../../_derived/nortbots.htm';return false;"
webbot-onSubmit>
<!--webbot bot="SaveResults" u-file="form_results.html" s-format="HTML/BR"
s-label-fields="TRUE" b-reverse-chronology="FALSE" s-builtin-fields --><p>
<input type="text" name="serial" size="50" dir="ltr" tabindex="0"></p>
<p><input type="text" name="name" size="50" dir="ltr" tabindex="1"></p>
<p><input type="submit" value="Submit" name="B1"><input type="reset"
value="Reset" name="B2"></p>
</form>

</body>

</html>

Sounds like the issue is with the server side component of the system
(FrontPage extensions in this case). You should look into that.
(Incidently, this means it has little to do with authoring HTML)
