Creating a Frontpage Form

You can create a form by using the "Form Page Wizard," which prompts you to specify the following information:

  • The data you want to gather, which determines which fields to place on your form.
  • The way you want to lay out fields. You can organize the form into paragraphs or lists, and choose whether to use tables to lay out the page
  • Whether to include a table of contents at the top of the page, which is useful for large forms.
  • How you want to save form results (the data gathered from the form after a site visitor fills it out).
    The wizard allows you to save the results to a text file or HTML file, or you can use your own custom script to handle the results.
    When a site visitor clicks the submit button on the form, the form results will be sent to the location you specified.

Using this information, the wizard creates your form. You can customize it by editing the text, and defining properties and data entry rules for the form fields.

  1. On the File menu, select New, and then click Page.
  2. On the General tab, click "Form Page Wizard," then click OK.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the form.
