Hello Shahkash,

Thanks for the information and for the question! Apparently this is a fairly common question. I was able to find what is hopefully the correct answer for you by looking in several forums. Let me re-state the question clearly for others who might be seeing your request:

When using Drupal web forms, where in the drupal database are the entries saved for each form?

The link I found has a very clear answer on how to find this. He states that you can look at the schema of the tables in the webform.install file. And this will tell you were to find the data submitted to your form in the database.

I hope this gives you the information you need to find your data! Please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Hi shahkash,

I'm personally not very familiar with web forms in Drupal. I read <a href=''>their documentation on this</a> page to get an idea of what it is you're talking about.

<strong>When reading your questions, they appear to be:</strong>

<em>where i find radio button options like(never , always, sometime ) to add value for it by snippet php</em>

... and ...

<em>how can i add (insert ) the name of option and it's value i have confuse</em>

To confirm, are trying to have control over the name and id's of the form inputs, such as what I've bolded below?
&lt;input type='text' name='<strong>phone_number</strong>' id='<strong>phone_number</strong>' /&gt;

If so, why exactly are you trying to change these? If you can tell us your end result, we can try to find a solution for you. At this point though, I'm still not 100% what it is you're trying to accomplish.

Hello shahkash, it sounds like you're on the right path, as in Drupal you would typically use the Webform module in order to create a questionnaire.

As none of us have had direct experiencing trying this out ourselves, and it sounds like you're trying to do some more advanced things, probably your best resource for help on this matter would be the official Drupal Webform module documentation. As this includes not only documentation regarding the module, but also a few webcasts that go over how to create forms.

Linked from that page is also a page on Checkboxes, Radio Buttons, or Select Lists which goes over creating these different types of form elements.

Then there is also a Drupal Webform Report Module which sounds like what you might be looking for in terms of turning your questionnaires into a report.

Please let us know if you had any further questions.
