Where is your data stored?
How much have of your PHP script is done so far?

If your PHP script is empty, you need to read about PHP scripting. How does the from fields reach a script (read this)

If your data is stored in a MySQL databate, you have a PHP reference for accessing MySQL here.

Well, first I'd probably change the form method to post...

then use $_POST['variable'] to display it...

For example, if your input box is...

<input type="text" name="userid">


echo $_POST['userid']; display it.
