    How to get form submission data go straight into MS Acces database

    Asked by Kate Siraj on August 29, 2014 at 05:28 PM

    Hi there,

    I am trying to do this too, get the data to go straigh into an Access database. However, I have no idea about how to go about writing php to get this to work. The people who've asked about it above have 'view answer' links but they don't seem to work. Could anyone point me in the right direction? Many thanks,

    Hi Kate,

    You were not able to view the answers of the other posters because they have set their post/questions to private mode.

    As to your current question, it is correct that you will at least need basic understanding of PHP coding to better utilize the Webhooks feature of the form.

    Perhaps having example implementations can get you forward. You can find some here https://www.jotform.com/help/248-Webhook-Samples

    The core requirement is to POST the data of your form submission before you can import the data to external database like your MS Access.


    The process should be similar to the described on the user guide https://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    And the simple instruction here https://www.jotform.com/answers/363070 should also help.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need more assistance.
