Does anyone know if it is possible to make a "Bid" system with WFB?

I guess it all depends on how you want to interact with the data.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

examples of what can be accomplished in VSD.

That's the real thing "I don't"
The less interaction and things I have to do on my end the better.
I want the "bid" to somehow be included into the original form and thus have a regular expression that makes the next bidder have to bid more than the last.
As a novice.... I would think that it would somehow would include WFB(located on a s-drive stream)>the results formatted and emailed to a contributor email for the stream that the Form is located on.

A setup like that would take some serious manipulation of the existing form files. It would be easy to setup a running bid history and have that displayed on a page but the kind of results your looking for are way beyond that.:)

If I may Eric. One of the forums I am a member of is hotscripts There you can find scripts for auctions classifieds and the like both commercial and free.
WFB is about the best in its field for quality of forms, It will make simple decisions based on input but Bids or Auction systems entails much much more. I am hoping that CC does put something like that together it would be mind blowing but I think you will have to look else where.
Having said that, using the HTML editor is the way to go to house a script like that and control the project.
You could also include a WFB form to answer questions from potential clients.
