How can I have the information submitted through a web form going to filemaker? The idea is that every time someone submits info online a record is created in the filemaker database. Fields in the database and the web form are the same.
If your file is hosted by FileMaker Server there's a few options here:
- use the FileMaker PHP API/Custom Web Publishing to hook the online form into your database so that on submit it creates a new record
- if you're using FileMaker Server v13 you can use the new WebDirect feature to do the same using a layout you design

alternatively you could quite easily parse the email generated by the form. If you have an email plugin, FileMaker could receive the webform emails automatically. All this would work with a normal FM Pro without a server.
Another option is to tap the back-end database the web form is currently using (most likely some form of SQL) using ESS, ODBC, or some form of export.
