    I have a contact form on my company's website and would like the contact
    information that is entered in the contact form to be sent to me in a manner
    that does not require me to manually enter the contact info into my Access
    database.

    I was thinking about having the website contact form automatically generate
    and send an emailed to me with the xml record as an attachment. Does anyone
    know if I would be able to simply open the attachment using Access and have
    the contact information roll into the database or Access form?

    I am certainly open to suggestions and advise if someone has already crossed
    this bridge.

    I am working with a PDF file that emails me XML data. I save that data to my
    desktop and then import directly to Access. If everything is in a flat record
    (meaning one table), it works very well.

    I haven't investigated publishing the PDF to a website, but I know it's been
    done. Perhaps that could get you a step further along?

    Also, there is a content management system called Mambo, which has a nice
    component called Facile Forms (facileforms.biz). It allows custom forms to be
    developed that will send XML data directly to any email address you specify.
    Not as easy to use as a PDF generator, but it's already a web-based form.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
