 Newbie question.

I'm pretty new to Filemaker.  Here is what I want to do.  I want to use my
web site to run a survey.  After someone inputs some data, I want  a page
to come back up with the current results of the survey.  Basically, I need
to  count each entry, compare that to the total entries, and display
results as a percentage.

Here are my questions.

Can I use just one field with a pull down menu, radio button or check box?
Would the scripting be very difficult, if any?

Example

Which network operating system do you think will be {*filter*} in the future?

Choose one

Mac OSX
Linux
Unix
Window NT 2000
Sun
Novell
Other

Here are the results

MacOSX-XX%  Linux XX%  Unix  XX%  Windows NT 2000  XX%  Sun  XX%  Novell  XX%

Thanks for any help

Steve

Follow up questions.

The form for entering data will be part of a larger page.  This page can't
reside in the web folder of filemaker pro, as it is the index page for the
web site and must reside on our IIS server.  So, do I need some kind of
fancy CGI?

Thanks

Steve

How to do this? Read the manual, I guess...

Waves In Motion has a survey plug-in:

Dragon Web 4.0 relies on FileMaker Pro as its engine; users must own a copy of
FileMaker Pro 4.0 to run the software. It also requires a dedicated Web server
to host the surveys. Dragon Web and Dragon Desktop are compatible with Mac OS
7.5 or later, Windows 95 and Windows NT.

Dragon Web 4.0 costs $189; users who want to customize the software can
purchase an unlocked version for $239. Registered users of Simply Surveys 3.4
can upgrade to Dragon Web 4.0 for $49. Demos are available on the company's Web
site.

Dragon Desktop lists for $79. Upgrades from Simply Surveys are $29. Users can
also purchase Waves in Motion's Desktop Communication Bundle with Dragon
Desktop, Dragon Web and a bulk e-mail application, Galleon Software's eMerge,
for $239.
