looking for a way to dynamically create a set of form fields

Hi Everyone,

Like the subject says, I'm looking for a way to dynamically create a set of form fields. Here is the scenario:

I'm going to have a customer information form, with company information (business name, address, phone, etc). If the company has more than one location, I need to be able to click a "New Location" button and create a new set of fields for that location. I'm not sure how many times I'll need to create a new set of fields, but at least once or twice, I'm sure.

I will also need to be able to send the form data to either an email address or a database of some kind. I have a PHP script that I use to send form data to an email address, but nothing to send the data to a database. For now, the email script should be fine. Still I need to be able to send the dynamically created field data. Not sure how to do that. The PHP script I'm currently using specifies the field names. Unless I would just add code based on what the new field names would be (I would think a more dynamic approach to this would be better tho).

Any advice on which direction to go with all this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Steve

In the script I'd include a radio box "Another location" with increment count to display the next insert info. How all that stuffs into your database is a different aspect as you will end up with unequal fields (I'm old school and not all that nifty in that regard... I like structured data).
