I have already created a working database insert test on another page, and I wanted to test the same functionality while using a separate page from the insert form and the results list.

My page is here:

On this page, I set up the database action executor, using my global "insertContact" database action, and I correctly mapped the form fields to the fields in the database action. On the Options tab, I did not select Asynchronous, but did select Alert Errors. Then, I click the behaviors button on the Options tab, and selected "When the action is successfully executed" and I assigned the "Go To URL" behavior, and told it to redirect to my page that shows the contacts list.

I noticed first of all that the required fields are not enforced, and clicking the button does nothing. Why isn't this working?

Hello Steve,
The problem on this page seems to be that the Data Bindings includes(js) are missing, as you are not using any data on the page. Is there a specific reason for you to divide the form and results on different pages instead of using them on one page with show/hide regions?

Well, I was testing to see if it could be done this way because I have many situations where the forms for entry and edit are very large (lots of fields). A layout like what you have in your tutorials just doesn't work with large forms. I'm trying to figure out how to best handle that situation. I probably deal with just as many large forms (10+ fields) as I do smaller ones.
