OnyakTech Custom Forms F.A.Q for DNN
Yes, to save to the database you want to check the option "Save to database" under "Forms Data Options" in Display Setup.
OnyakTech Forms saves the values following standard relational database design. Values are not stored as XML with all values in a single column or using a design that will make it difficult to report against. For example, if you create a Form named "MyUsers" and you have controls for Name and Address, OnyakTech Forms will create a new table for this Form (unless it already exists or you have specified your own table) along with a primary key (identity 1,1) and two columns named "Name" and "Address". Each Form Entry will create one row into that table.
Forms module will save the Form entries to a new table named after your Form if you don't add a TABLE token to your Form Template. The name of the table will be something like OnyakTechFormsPortalId_YourFormNameHere.
When testing your forms the best feature to use to help you with the testing is to enable the Debug Log in Display Setup located in "Other Options". Then test your form while in Edit mode on the page. Complete details and potential issues will be displayed in this log to help you test your form.

Yes, you will find this option in "Forms Data Options" in Display Setup.
When OnyakTech Forms saves the information to a database it will first query the table design to determine the best way to store the information based on the data types defined for your tables columns. Then it will determine if all Form values entered have a matching column in your table, if matching columns are not found then OnyakTech Forms will add new columns to your table for you to store the values. It also verifies the primary key and will create a primary key for you if your table does not yet have one. On top of that, OnyakTech Forms takes extra care to make sure that data stored is "global aware".
