I am trying to use HTTPOST in Filemaker 13 using the "Insert from URL” script. The website is "http://web.expasy.org/compute_pi/“ and I am trying to get the results of submitting this form. Is there anyone that knows how to format the "HTTPPOST://….” to retrieve the results of submitting this form? Thanks!!!!

The website that you want to talk to has to explain how to construct the URL to talk to its services.  It does not look like this site does.

You can probably find out by inspecting what the code does when you click the button, but that is not the typical way of interacting with a web service.

 This is a CGI, not a web service.

 

I am sure you can find out how to submit a form using HTTP POST (this is not a Filemaker question) - but there's no guarantee that the site will accept it; many sites require forms to be submitted from their own pages only.
