In Microsoft FrontPage Editor, when you insert text boxes in multiple cells of a table, all of the text boxes have the same name, "T1" (they do not increment).
NOTE: To determine the name assigned to each text box, right-click the text box, and then click Form Field Properties on the menu that appears.
When you insert a text box in a table cell, FrontPage treats that cell as a separate form. As a result, when you insert multiple text boxes in multiple table cells, each cell is treated as a separate form and each form field is assigned the same name.
To set up a single form in a table, follow these steps:
- On the Insert menu, point to Form Field, and then click "One-Line Text Box."
- Select the text box Form Field and then press DELETE.
The dashed lines that indicate the area of the form remain even though you deleted the form field.
- On the Table menu, click Insert Table.
- In the Insert Table dialog box, select the options you want, and then click OK.
You can now insert form fields in multiple cells. Each form field will be assigned a new name, such as T1, T2, T3, and so on.
In FrontPage Editor, a form is comprised of one or more form fields. A one- line text box is an example of a form field.
