Hi Guys,

I am in the midst of developing my website and just need some knowledge on how to connect forms when customers are completing them. There are three steps in completing my form. However I want each step to be on seperate web pages, but essentially the same form.

For example,
Step 1 in completion of the form is:
Contact Details
Account Details
Terms and Conditions

Step 2 in completion of form is:
Details of item being sold
Additional Features
Selling price
etc

Step 3 in completion of the form is:
Payment of the form.

If I were to put all of this information on the same page it would be information overload. Which is why I want to seperate it into three pages.

So can the form be on seperate webpages but essentially connected?
i.e. In step one when they complete there account details they hit the NEXT button that then takes them to the next stage of the form but on a seperate page. I know this can be done but dont know whether Blue Voda has the ability or tools to do it.

I really need some help and direction otherwise I cannot continue on.

Ok, try visiting http://www.navaldesign.info/Tips/multiformframe.html and see if this is close to what you want. If so, let me know. Please note that i have not put any effort in aligning the fields: that's just a demo page.

Yes...that is the idea....and then have all of the pages get integrated somehow whereby the info all goes together to an email address.

Well, what you have just seen is NOT a three paged form. It is a one page form, with three sections, using bookmarks to move between the sections, and an I frame to trick the visitor. You can have as many pages as you want, even move between "pages", and at the end the info is all submitted as a unique form. Please use my form (http://www.navaldesign.info/feedback13.html) to send me your email so i can send you the .bvp file . Just use it to see how the arrangement has been done, then create your own.

Okay I sent you my info via your form. Thanks for sending me the file so I can see what you have done. So, you say that by adapting the form, I will be able to send what looks like a multipage form as one email?

I have been spending a lot of time talking to you about my email problems, too. Thanks for all of your help. You are very knowledgeable.
