    Insert data to the table of SQL database from Umbraco Form

    As I am new to Umbraco, I am little bit confuse that ,

    Is it possible to insert data into SQL Table from the Umbraco Form?

    I searched a lot but didn't get any solution. Please give me your suggestions or some reference links for the same.

    Please note that I already have connection string in web.config for my SQL database.

    Hi Trusha,

    There is nothing available out of the box. I've not done it myself, but you could create a custom workflow, see Adding a Workflow Type

    If you don't fancy trying that you could base your solution on one of the existing workflows but it won't be as smooth, for example Save as Xml. Then write something which picks up the Xml and writes that to your database in the required format.

    Alternatively, the Umbraco form data is already held within the Umbraco database and depending on what you want to do with it you may just be able to read the data directly.

    Hi Tim,

    Thanks for your reply. Is there any alternate way to create form and insert/Update data into SQL database instead of Umbraco form?

    Hi,

    You can use any view to add an HTML form and process the data however you want in the controller.

    There's a blog post here which might help explain some of the steps.

    Regards,

    Tim
