Hi Chris,

Sorry, my mistake - trying to do three things at one. The values need to be in the form
value="<?php echo $_POST['Name'] ?>
I fixed them all for you I think.

PS I strongly suggest that you don't use names like "Average_Passenger_Load_(80%_of_the_Trips)" they are long and cumbersome and the '(, ), %' may well cause problems if they are misinterpreted as control characters. Keep them short like 'apl_80'. If you want the full names in the email then you can use the Element Titles tab or an email template.

Oh...you mean you have other things to do too? No way -- get out! Just kidding -- that is why I am so grateful that you are helping me.

Thanks for making the changes. Stupid question here -- can the "name" be different than what appears on the form that the interested party sees?

For example:

<tr><td align="right"><em>Principal Use of Aircraft</em></td>
<td><input type="text" name="PUA" value size="35"></td></tr>


Thanks again!

Hi Chris,

Can the name be different from the text the user sees? Absolutely, there's no connection between the two.

But - if you use short form field names with the 'Fields Titles' format for the results email then it 'may' help to use the Elements titles tab to de-code them a bit. Elements Titles works like "PUA=Principal Use of Aircraft".
