    Need a form to submit quotes in database


    Definitely new to mysql and innodb. So please bare with me. This is probably a really simple question. Im just not looking in the right place. I need a form that will allow me to submit quotes. Basically a form that you can fill in and it looks like a database spreadsheet. There are 3 columns, "Author", "Quote", "Topic". And you can submit up to 25 quotes at a time. You can "go back to view quotes" and there is a submit button at the bottom. I have over 10,000 quotes I want to put into this kind of form so that I can upload them to mysql. Does anyone know where I could find this? I am using innodb. Is there a way to access this feature in mysql? Any help would be SO greatly appreciated!!

    what language are you going to use to process the form?

    on the likelihood that it's gonna be php, i have moved your thread to the php forum

    Lol Thank you for the correction! That's funny because I happen to be very critical about spelling.

    And that's funny, because we're very critical of people who don't show the least amount of effort, expecting to just be given cut & paste code.

    As I stated when I originally started this discussion, "Definitely new to mysql and innodb." Just looking for guidance. If you don't have a useful response, why bother with a reply? Just putting that out there.

    Are you actually trying to build an application that lets other people submit quotes, or do you just need to do it yourself?

    If you're just trying to do it yourself, you could install a program like PhpMyAdmin.

    You could also do a direct import into MySQL of a CSV file.

    Thank you for your response. I do want to submit quotes myself. I just had no idea where to start. I have phpmyadmin installed. I will try your suggestion and let you know how it works out. Thank you.
