    ASP contact form query

    Hi All,

    I was recently asked by work to put together a contact form to email page on our site.

    So fair enough I thought pretty easy, so I coded one in php. Only to findout when testing it that our site is on a windows server. And does not like PHP!!

    So I am going to have to code it again now in .asp which I will say I have little experience in. Now I know I could easily google a script and download it.

    But my problem comes when I will have to customise the code to my needs, i need someone to explain how I change the way the emailBody is output/formatted?

    Because the actual form I have to come up with has to have multiple fields, with their values being displayed within the emailBody. And so far the examples I have seen online have been basic dealing simply with Name, Email and Message.

    Below is a snippet of code from my original files if someone is willing to take a look to see how it needs outputting. You see i understand the concept of how the PHP file gets the info using id's and arrays.

    But looking at asp it seems a bit general not sure how to define values.


    <h3>Entrant Details:</h3>
    <form method="post" name="myemailform" action="http://www.moneymedia.co.im/paform-to-email.php">
    		<label for='entrant-name'>Name: </label><br>
    		<input type="text" name="entrant-name" size="40">

    So you made no attempt at what you found via Google?

    Maybe if you made just a little effort we can help with the tougher parts but it sounds like you want us to write your code for you.
