How to use submit button on HTML?

Hello -

The question you are asking is about a web page. This forum is not about web pages but is about administrative scripting using an HTA or Hypertext Application.

HTAs do not use a submit button and are not capable of submitting data to a web form.

You can use an HTA to save information to a file, spreadsheet or database on the local machine or on a network share.

The easiest way to save data is save it to a file using the FileSystemObject.

If this is what you would like to do then post the code or HTA that you have written and someone will try to help you find what you need to complete the exercise.

you need to have a php file that will process the information on your form and save it to your database.

A submit button created using <input type="submit>
is rather a drab looking gray colored entity, unless you know style
sheets. here
is a solution to add color to your HTML forms.The simplest way is to use an image as a submit button employing the <input> HTML form tag.
<input type="image" src="butup.gif" alt="Submit button">From
