I'm trialing the free version of forms to confirm they will be suitable for my needs - so far, so good. However...I'm trying to get form data into some custom tables and getting stuck.My assumption is: To insert any data collected from my forms into database tables I need configure integrator to point at the right tables and fields. I've created custom tables via phpmyadmin and I can see the new tables displayed in the dropdown on the base Data part of integrator form. I save that (only save and close button available but it appears to work) and then I try to complete the Data Integration part of the form, but the Database Field (outgoing) box is never populated with anything...even if I test it using standard jos_ named tables. What am I doing wrong? Mark

Hi,

The name of the database table which you are connecting to the form using the Integrator, must start with the same prefix that you assigned when installing Joomla or BF won't recognize your table.

Basically BF uses the Joomla API to read the database columns. It obviously isn't able to find those so something is not right with the table (I assume).

Can you actually select any other table? Just for testing, because this might confirm it and we can see further.

Also, please see this video:

The video is about 5 years old but can be helpful

and check this documentation:
crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...-the-integrator.html

Hope this helps

Regards,
Tihana

Got it! I missed that you needed to use joomla prefix tables (I had watched that video .. just missed the reference to the joomla tables). I've got it to work for a sampleContactForm and insert a *_user row. I can't get it to work for a form using the AddDeleteRows template. The form asks for your name, email, contact details, and then asks you to repeat this for any other managers in your group. So i mapped the first 2 sections to write the name and email into *_users. It didn't complain, but it didn't insert any rows either. I was hoping for a new user row for each manager. I can see from 'manage records' that the form collected something; it just didn't do the db insert?I've attached the manager records output and integrator screens. Probably another simple mistake I'm making (sorry!)Mark
