    two forms at once

    Hi All,
    new here, so I will jump right in.

    Does anyone know a way of getting data entered in a form to simultaneously get entered into a exact copy of the form on another page?

    I ask because I have a redirect set up when one of the mandatory fields is missed, and I want the redirect page to be the form they have just filled in but with the error message showing.

    The reason being, that one of the fields is for submission of abstracts for an AGM, and I do not think the person entering the info would be too pleased with having to redo the whole form.

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    Why not use the same form, but show the error message after a post back to the server if the field is missing? That's how you usually do it.

    I just smacked my self hard in the head. I am silly. All I had to do was set up a separate error page with a back button to take them back to the form, and it still has there input in the fields. Works a treat!
