    You can use of Send Post data feature to transmit information submitted in the form to your database.

    To see how Send Post works:

    1. Create a "test.php" on your site and put this code in it:

    <? print_r($_POST); ?>

    2. Go to "Setup & Embed" -> "Thank You" -> "Custom URL" and enter http://domain.com/test.php

    3. Enable the "Send Post Data" (Preferences -> Advanced Settings)

    4. Save and submit your form.

    Hope this helps, let us know if you have questions
