Chapter 26. Creating Professional Web Sites > Creating Interactive Forms

Creating Interactive Forms

If you’ve ever ordered an item online or used a Web search engine, you’ve used an interactive form. In Word, you can create online interactive forms in your Web page documents the same way you create standard forms. The main difference between creating standard Word forms and online forms is that you need to configure the properties of your online form’s controls to work with your Web server. Because online forms created in Word require additional support files and server support, you should work with your network or Web administrator when planning and creating interactive Web forms.

Tip

Receive form responses as e-mail messages

In addition to creating a server-side online form (a form that needs to work with a Web server that’s configured to handle interactive forms), you can also create a Web form that sends an e-mail message to you each time the form is completed by a user. Whenever a user completes this type of form (often referred to as a client-side form) and then clicks a submit button, you receive an e-mail message containing the user’s entries. To create this type of form, your best bet is to turn to a full-fledged HTML editor, such as FrontPage 2003.
