  • Can you edit your question and post the code used to create the template? If possible, also post the table you would like to create with examples where the data should go.

This is the code to create the form, i have created the table already, it has 3 columns, name [varchar], description [varchar] and date [date]. i am missing the code to include that allows the from to upload the values in the fields to the table please.

<form method = "post" action = ""> <h3>Add a activity</h3> <p style="font-weight:bold;" label for="supervisor">Supervisor:</label> <input type="text" name="supervisor"/> </p> <p style="font-weight:bold;" label for="description">Description</label> <input type="text" name="description"/> </p> <p style="font-weight:bold;" label for="date">Date</label> <input id="date" type="date" name="date"/> </p> <hr> <input type="submit" value="Submit" name="activity_submit"/> </form> </br>
