Hi,
I've been given the task of creating a form online and storing the user input in a single excel sheet... or a database, whichever is less time consuming for me at this point.

What is the most efficient way of doing this? Php/sql?

I'm at a loss with which terms to google search for help...

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

PHP MySQL

Use $_POST and an Insert into table query.

A good set of tutorials by Kevin Yank

If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.

Are there any programs that do the work for you?

As much as I want to learn this quickly, I don't think I'll have enough time to learn and finish the client job... probably screwed huh.
