I can't seem to find a script for this, but maybe I have not looked hard enough.
I need a user on my site to be able to fill in 2 fields on my site and if they match, return a third field.
basically it would be their Last Name and Zip code, if this matched it would show the expiration date of their membership.
the database would just be the 3 fields and maybe 2000 records.
I just don't know where to start on this.
my webhost has MySql, PHP, etc. (note: this is related to a club membership that is not web-based, people get a magazine and want to have a simple way to find out when it expires. Right now they send emails or call me even though it is actually printed on their magazine)
I would be happy to use a simple flat file as I just export the info I need out of Filemaker, but once I have the flat file, I don't know what to do with it.? I remember I asked this question once before someplace and one answer was to post all the info as a single HTML web page and then draw on that, but I could not get anyone to explain how. Apparently it is so simple that it cannot be explained.
I only mentioned that MySql and PHP are installed on my webserver in case anyone asked. If I can avoid using MySQL, that would be great. I just use that for the premade forum and photoposting programs that I installed. All the heavy lifting is done.
I will look at the "Dealing with Forms" link, thank you. I am viewing this as a learning experience so I plan to start *very* small and work my work my way up. Its a hobby job, not a work job.
