Create a Percentage Table

This page gives another example of my ColdFusion programming for Gilway Lighting. The task at hand was to establish a chart that recorded the number of magazines checked off (such as EEM, Thomas), and then compute the percentages of the total every time the form is submitted. Of course, this is not the actual form, but Gilway encouraged me to put the testing form on the web, and allowed me to use one of their tables.

See for yourself how the forms and number of applicants are incremented, and how the percentages follow. Also, a counter for National and International Respondents in included, and an email is sent out to gilway with the results. The code that does most of the work is below, and is on the sub_gil2.cfm page.

Use the links that follow to access the sample form. The Code below, copy it into Notepad first, before treating as HTML.
