  Subject: Flat File Database Issues
  Posted: 04/15/2004 at 3:52:53 am

I love the script; I'm very much impressed by it.
I have two issues
1. When the form information is written to the data file the script insert '+' for the spaces into the .dat file. Is there any way to remove these "+"

2. I have multiple fields with the same name when I receive the form mail response the two input values are inserted into the email but in the auto response email the second field is not inserted into the email and in the .dat file the first field is over written by the second.

Could you let me know how I may resolves these issues?

1. If you download the Windows version of this script, then YES, that is a problem on some servers, that will be updated When Windows version 2.1 is realeased, which realy should be sometime the end of this week. However if you are using the *nix or main version of the script, it was fixed for all servers in version 2.1. Just download and re-install and you would be all set.

2. To write data to the data file, this script uses:
open(OUT,">> $ctrfile");

Unless you edit this line or change the: >> TO >

It should add the results under the previous line.

I would check with your host if all is right with what version of Perl they are using. Also what type of server are you on, Win/Unix

I believe I am already using the Unix Biz Formmail 2.1 Version

I have changed all instances of
open(OUT,">> $ctrfile");
open(OUT,"> $ctrfile");
but still no changes to the dat file or the HTML autoresponer.

The Machine i'm running the script on is a Unix Coblat RAQ4 with Perl version 5.005

1. Try downloading the script again. I updated several aspects to it even within the 2.1 release.

2. The line should be:
open(OUT,">> $ctrfile");

3. Are you getting anything written to bizmail.dat

4. If no, is bizmail.dat chmoded to 777
