Problem with forms

roxiboxi2 I need some help with something that is probably simple but I'm having a problem inserting basic text from a text box form into a document template.  For example, If I asked for a name in a text box form and want to insert the response at a certain location in a document template, how do I do that?  The document template is part of my ebook.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  

Thanks . . . Bob M.

EBookCompiler Is this with Activ E-Book Compiler

Have you looked at the DISPLAY command (Activ E-Book Compiler specific)

On the JavaScript codes to set a form (works with most ebook compilers)

Give us a specific example of what you want to do, and the ebook compiler in use, and me or somebody else can try to answer

roxiboxi2 Thanks for responding to my question.  I am looking for some software or tool to help.  If E-book Compiler can do what I need, I will gladly purchase it.  I have tried the free version.  I need to ask questions with a simple text box form and then be able to insert the resoonses (whichis simple text like a name) into a document template.  A sample of the document template would be as follows:

The name of the company is ________________.  When the user inserts the name in the text box form, the name will then be inserted in the document template so the document template would read as, "The name of the company is XYZ, Inc."

Thanks again for your assistance.  It is much appreciated.

EBookCompiler And both the first and second page is HTML in an ebook?

OKay with with ebookcompiler.com

In first HTML file (replace round brackets with less-than-greater than)

(FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="#!showform.as"
Enter Company Name

Make a text file called showform.as containing

DISPLAY('The name of the company is {company}')
