Missing text field in database

purple knight 07 Apr, 2009
Hallo,

I create a form using ChronoForm Wizard. In this form, there are a variety of text field or drop-downs. After creating the form, I access the page to do some test submissions. However, I realised several entries (text field types) aren't able to be displayed when I look at the database. This problem only happens to text field types & check boxes, doesn't occur for text area or drop-downs.

Any suggestions? =)

Hi Purple Knight,

Not enough information here to suggest anything useful - possibly invalid field names???

Thanks a lot, Bob.

The file is a .cfb type. Is that alright?

Many many thanks.

Hi purple knight,

Yes .cfbak - you can't post them here without zipping though.

I got your file by email, it all looks OK to me with the possible exception of the check0 field.

Thanks a million, Bob.

After double checking and triple checking, I realised the problem was with the connection database. The form has several fields that aren't listed in the DB.

For the benefit of others who may face the same problem, you can try logging on to mysql database to view it. What I did was to delete the entire table (linked with this particular chronoform) in mysql. And go back to Joomla/Chronoform interface to re-create the table. That works for me. Hope it is useful for u. =)

Oh yes Bob, there is indeed a bug problem with the check field. Only part that still doesn't work.

Thanks a million for your helpful advice. 😀
