Hello there and happy hollydays,

I'm making a flash-site for a friend of mine allready having an HTML-site.(scooters) In the HTML-site are two forms (buying and selling)allready in process.
Now I made an exact form in HTML. The variable names are exactly the same. I want these values obtained send to my friends Email adress. using a script aside
Now, can I just target the send button to the HTML script or do i need a new script.

Second question, this is my second site I am making, and it's working quite well (hard to short hours) but I wasn't been able to put one on the net. Now what kind of information I need to know from the HTML designer to upload my movie and works it well with cuteFTP. Some advise gurus

Can somebody help this lonely ranger out?....;

I don't get what you mean. If you mean "Can I use my existing HTML script and remake the form in flash" then the answer is 'probably not'. If the submit script is Javascript you may be able to, but if it's using HTML forms then no. Take a look at my PHP sendmail tutorial, it may be of some use to you:
http://www.actionscripts.org/tutorials/intermediate/php_send_mail/index.shtml

Regarding uploading your files: if the files work on your local disk all you have to do is upload them in the same form (maintaining directory structure). CuteFTP will automatically set modes, but incase it doesn't, HTML pages should be ASCII and Flash swf movies should be Binary.
You need only upload the files with .html and .swf extensions; the .fla files are for editting purposes only.

Does that help?

Cheers

Jesse
