      Working with web forms

      Post

      I am looking at buying filemaker and would like to know which version will work for me.  I am wanting to create a web form for customers to input data on and then pull this data into a program like filemaker.  Can this be done with the base version. 

       

      I already own a domain and have web hosting for the company.  I don't have any sql back end but could add it.

       

      Any ideas?

          Thank you for your post.

           

          The current version of FileMaker Pro allows you to share your files over the web through Instant Web Publishing, but that limits you to five users at a time.  You may want to take a look on our web site:

           

          http://www.filemaker.com/products/fmp/connect.html

           

          If you need more users to use the file, you will need FileMaker Server Advanced.

           

          FileMaker Server Advanced also adds Custom Web Publishing with PHP.

           

          Let me know if you need any additional information.

            I'm not wanting to share the files.  What I want is to have an online form for customers to fill in and have the informtion captured in filemaker.  Can this be done.

              Note that while FileMaker Server Advanced IS required for Instant Web Publishing, it is NOT required for Custom Web Publishing in version 9.
