    Hi,

    the local file is on a harddrive not uploaded. It's like opening a path where the html is.

    so once they press submit it links to the next page, I added a  HREF="survey.html" to link to the button that says submit but it then sends me to a jotform website ? 

     

    This all needs to stay local on the C drive.

    Unfortunately I don't quite think that this would be possible. The only way I see this working is if someone accessed your computer directly then filled out the form and was redirected to the local file via a specified command path as the url link.

    The problem with it is that because you are trying to keep it only on a local machine the public won't be able to access it since it has not been uploaded or embedded somewhere so they won't be able to get to it unless they come to that particular computer by sitting in front it.

    An alternative method to this would be to use remote access but that would mean that the computer would have to be on, firewall and computer network would have to allow it, and they would have to have tunneling permissions with both computers setup to support it depending on what program is being used to allow this to happen.
