Forms, build or download the finished article

Hi folks, Forms are a mystery to me installing the HTML tags into a web page is easy any one can make a form. Its the processing of the form that Mr Thicko here cannot grasp. I have concluded my best way forward is to either use the free code examples from or maybe use a purchased application such as OR is there an idiot proof walk through form building guide. Are there any recomendations for any of the above.

Thanks in anticipation
