FP2002 Forms & ASP problem

Hi there,

I am quite new to ASP so please don't start stoning yet...

I have successfully created a form in html. This is a post form and calls
and asp which is supposed to simply give a thank you message.
However, whenever I press the submit button it opens a page populating it
with the actual asp code... I've tried looking at answers and have tried
every simple forms and asp coding to see if it does something else but all
give the same result.

What am I missing?!

Yours in frustrating and stupidity :)

Regards,

Hard to help w/o any info on whant you did in the asp processing code or seeing the pages
- are the page files both using a .asp file extension?

Are you viewing the pages from a server (using a location similar to http://example.com/page.asp) or from the file system (like c:\path\to\page.asp)?
If from a server, does the server support asp pages - Windows servers usually do, Unix (Apache) servers often do not.
If file system - what you see is the correct result - asp pages MUST be browsed from a server that supports asp.

Hi and thank you for the prompt response.

I am viewing this from my pc (I have installed the IIS and thought this
would enable me to test this as if it were a live web site) so that kinda
answers my question. It does relieve a bit of frustration knowing that it is
supposed to be from a server.

Thank you and regards,
W

Hi,

The form was done in html together with the rest of the page (menu's, etc.).
The form has action ="bbb.asp" and the asp file simply emails some
information.
