    Hello getheardbeseen,

    Thank you for posting your inquiry.

    I have looked into your code and it seems that it's more of an issue about your code and not about the form.

    In your source code, I noticed that you have the param name wmode tag within your <object> tag but you do not have the wmode="" property inside your object tag.  I'm not actually sure if this will fix your problem but it's worth a try.  You can also try setting it to transparent instead of opaque, since the issue is that the whole flash layer is on top of your form that's why it's not showing up.

    Please let us know of the result.  If it did not solve the issue, I would like to help you more in fixing this.

    Hello again getheardbeseen,

    As I have looked further... I can't seem to understand why the form in anyway is not loading at all when viewed in IE.  I'm pretty sure that there is something in your code there that's keeping it off from being posted.  Can you try dismantling each tag until you get to see what's wrong? 

    Just wondering.  Are you using any type of CMS on your website?

    I noticed that you used Embed <> codes to insert your form. Can you try using iframe codes instead?

    To get your form's iframe embed codes

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed tab
    2.  Click Embed Form
    3.  Click iFrame

    4.  Copy the codes provided in the succeeding screen


    Let me know if this helps or not. We'll find another way to fix that issue if it still persists.
