    First you must find out the actual Variable Names and PHP codes in the POST result.

    Try this steps

    1. Set this URL https://www.jotform.com/show-post-data as the Thank You URL of your form



    2. Enable Send Post Data on your form

    3. Test submit your form.

    The result page should give you all the variable names and PHP codes to used in the POST page.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further help on this.
