    You are using a submit button to send a query to a frontpage webbot, and most likely, u do not have the ms- frontpage server extensions installed on your server. or, if u do have the extensions, the server is most probably IIS and is running with guest permissions and is not allowed to create/modify the file to which u are trying to save the form results,,, IIS usually logs in as IUSR_PC1 or IUSR_<your compters network name> the user privileges for this account must be power user or admin. if you r using IIS, i suggest ASP, which is a robust data-handling application

    theres no frontpage server...
    first tell me, are your pages hosted on ur own computer?
    if they are, then u need IIS (internet information server) which comes as part of windows nt/2k/xp
    this servers capabilities can be extended by installing frontpage. if you are using windows 98/me, tough luck.

    this mite not be all of the problem though...
    please post the entire code from the form. the code u posted is incomplete and erroneous. (i didnt bother to look before :))

    or the url from where u found it...

    the code is perfect. nice even. but give me the location of the website u found this from. and, the location of this page on the internet.
    is it hosted on ur pc?
    if it is, search for a file called nortbots.htm
    and post it

    i downloaded the templates u probably downloaded,,, theyre supposed to be hosted on a webhost.
    if u wanna run them from your own pc, get a very fast connection. i use 4mb. dont go for a big isp. and upgrade to windows xp. then learn how to use IIS. install frontpage express.

    if u wanna use a webhost, try www.hostdepartment.com theyre cheap and good and robust. 3gb storage, 20gb bandwidth, 200 pop3 emails, plus all the perks u can think of.

    this is definitely ur problem,,, because the webpages run perfectly well on my IIS.

    I have dsl and I already have windows xp. where do I find front page? I searched and I apparently dont have it. The only problem is knowing how to change what they have to what I want for the submit button work. It says how to but I dont understand what they mean.
