Saving Data To A Spreadsheet
 
Q: I built my own Web site using Microsoft FrontPage. I currently have a form set up that collects user information (name, email address, etc.) and emails that information to me. The problem is that at the end of the month, I have to go through all of the emails, type them all into Excel, and then send out my mailings. This is quite a tedious process. Is there any way to get FrontPage to save this information in a database or spreadsheet format so I don't have to retype everything? >Jennifer, Boston MA
 
A: Jennifer, we cover this topic in our Microsoft FrontPage 201 course. If you go into the Form Properties, click on the Options button. You'll see a bunch of tabs. The first tab is called "File Results." On here, you can specify a filename to save the data to on your server. Just enter in a file name (recommended in your _private folder) and specify one of the text database formats. I like the "text database using tab as a separator" format because you can copy and paste the results directly into Excel and it keeps all of your data nicely in columns. Try it out.
