Hello,

I am new to this so please excuse my inexperience. I am designing a website that includes a form where users can enter text. I would like to generate a list (or table) of the data that would be displayed on the website immediately after the users enter it. Is there a script I can use to process the form data and generate a table to be displayed on the website?

Thanks for your help.
Dave

You need to learn some server side coding such as PHP for handling the form, these are usually made to measure.
And you also need a database to store this information which the PHP code will use SQL to add, remove and fetch data from.

I forgot to mention, wile not the best way by any means but if you do not have access to a database from your host you can use a flat file system where the users post data is saved to text files.
