If you do not want to use the back-end processing from Web Form Builder to process a form made with Form Designer, consider using Formtools for your form processor on your own server. The software seems to have all the features that are in WFB back-end form processing.

You can find Formtools at:

From the site:
Form Tools is a powerful, flexible, free and open source PHP/MySQL script you install on your website for managing your forms and data

I have an example using the Default form from Form Designer that works with Formtools: Designer 1

A ZIP file for the example is at: Designer

The ZIP file contains:
1. The Form Designer Project File. The only modifications made to this project file template was to add names to all form input fields.
2. A printout of selected form submissions exported from the submission database.
3. An Excel spreadsheet of the same selected form submissions exported from the submission database.
2. and 3. were made from modules in Formtools itself.

Install Formtools then...
To process your own form, carefully read the documentation and follow the steps exactly to process your own External form.

Good Luck, if you choose to go this way.
