Eric,

Thanks so much. I had just checked this after using the website you sent me to find the codes and I got them all right. Final questions.

I found where in Site Designer to put the input for the radio buttons and check boxes - they go in the ID for input section under the Element tab

Where does the input go for a drop down box it only shows a Name field under the element tab and the Text and Value for each of the options. Does it go in the Name field or in the Value field for each option.

For the Name field and Email Address does the input go in the Name field under the element tab or the value?

Finally what do I do with the Submit button to make it actually submit. I couldn't find any input code on the form

In SD use a Select from the Elements tab. There's every input type you need there.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Thank you Eric. I appreciate all of your help. I just saw in the previous message that I said Site Designer when I meant Form Designer. I looked at the Form elements for SD but still am confused where to put the input data

Open your Form in FD.
Select the email input.
Select the Element tab.
Scroll down to Name and paste emailAddress
Do this for each input in your form matching the Name attribute to the ones I posted above.
The Radio Buttons and Checkboxes will have to be done the number of each you have. All of the Radios will have the same name and All of the Chekboxes will have the same name. You don't need to do any hidden inputs as far as I know. The only one I'm not sure about is that dlut input. It's definitely a random generated value at page load which can be handled with a JS script if it's needed.

Thank you everyone for your help. I was able to get the form to process through Google forms but had to turn off the required option on the radio buttons, check boxes, and drop down responses. Any thoughts. I went through the form again in form designer and selected everything to be required but the form would no longer submit. Any thoughts? I can of course turn off required on those types of elements but then I end up with people filling out incomplete forms.

Thanks again
Phillip
