    I didn't find on the forum or in the wiki how to create complex forms. I there is a tutorial, please tell me the page.

    I need to display many tables (no relation between them) to use in lists on a new form: the visitor selects an item in all these lists, add two dates, his identity data and validate. All these data are saved in a new table.

    For exemple, a restaurant choice: entries, main courses, desserts, drink that are in their own table.

    Thanks for your help!

    For designing a database see e.g. http://fabrikar.com/forums/index.php?wiki/design-strategy/

    But you description doesn't sound complex.
    It seems you just want to use lookup tables.

    So create a list for your "new" table, add elements: databasejoin elements for the choices, date elements for the dates etc.

    Thanks troester!

    I have yet the "final" table and its fields (from a existant home made script), and o form using it.
    I am trying to give access to visitors for some, only administrator for all.
    I will try to use databasejoin fields (I'm usig them for others forms) but have for the moment some difficulties...
