"Any one knows how can we save value from the form into database?" - sure, Pekr told you how to do it.
Your problem is that you do not do what Pekr told you to do. First, you need to create the form. Check: Do you really have the form?
Second, you need to create a CGI script (this is not the form from the first point, the form from the first point is not a CGI script). Check: do you really have a CGI script ?
Pekr told you that the example you posted was neither the form, nor the CGI script.
One more note: your problem is much more elementary than handling the database. Before writing data to the database you need to have a script accepting (decoding) the data obtained from the form.

Ladislav - thank you. It is apparent, that what afsanehsamim is missing is the basic knowledge of how webserver stuff works between the client and the server. Examples at rebol.com are pretty straightforward. The only chance is to really create a simple example for him ...
Pekr
Create 2 files. Call the first one e.g. cgi-test.html, and upload it to your server. The only thing you have to change is the link to your .cgi script in there:
<HTML>
<TITLE>Simple Web Form</TITLE>
<BODY>
<b>Simple Web Form</b><p>
<FORM ACTION="http://www.xidys.com/cgi-bin/cgi-test.cgi">
<INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="Field" SIZE="25"><BR>
<INPUT TYPE="SUBMIT" NAME="Submit" VALUE="Submit">
</FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>
Create a second file, called cgi-test.cgi (it has to align to how you name it in the above source file). Upload it to your cgi working directory. Remember to change the first line to contain the path, where your REBOL executable is placed:
#!/usr/local/bin/rebcmd -sqc
REBOL []
print join "Content-type: text/plain" newline
start: now/time/precise
submitted: decode-cgi read-cgi
values: construct submitted
prin "Submitted: " print mold submitted
prin "values: " print mold values
prin "values/field: " print mold values/field
print now/time/precise - start
print newline

Now go to your URL, and try to submit some values. You can test it on my site at: http://www.xidys.com/cgi-test.html
but afsa, honestly - it does not even belong to the database group, but to Rebol School group - you seem to miss the basic understanding, of how CGI works on the server. Your problem is not in getting the value into DB, but handling CGI stuff in general. In above example, what you would put into your DB would be values/field ...

Thankyou so much ladislav and Pekr ... guys i  underestand whatever you said ... Pekr : you meant i should first decode values after that should values save in database? i have two files and both work properly! one html and another one is cgi ! i did your codes as well ... now plz tell me what is the next step ?  As i told you before i should save value in database  ,it is one part of my project !!!! :(  i did this link  http://www.rebol.com/docs/cgi2.html#section-2 and i underestood ...    http://www.rebol.com/docs/cgi2.html#section-2http://www.rebol.com/docs/cgi2.html#section-2
plz tell me decoding value is not related to saving data ?
then how can i save values ?
Endo
do you mean saving result to a file?
it is just a block, you can simple SAVE %file.r RESULT
afsanehsamim
no ...i mean saving values into database .
Endo
use a normal INSERT query.
insert db-port "INSERT INTO table (colA, colB) VALUES (1,2)"
or
insert db-port ["INSERT INTO table (colA, colB) VALUES (?,?)" 1 2]
afsanehsamim
Endo  values should get from form ,it is a big problem till now that no one could underestand ...
i did that query before but it is not working
Endo
how does it matter where the values come from? it is a totally different issue.
try reading
http://www.rebol.com/docs/cgi1.html
http://www.rebol.com/docs/cgi2.html
http://www.rebol.com/docs/cgi-bbs.html

@Pekr: could you tell me after decoding values what is the next step?
i decoded my values which i got from the form! my cgi and html are working ,plz tell me what should i do?
TomBon
afsa, did you succesfull echo back the decoded form values to the browser andreas told you before?
TomBon
if so, you have to add your mysql connection parameters to your script., open a mysql port and do an sql insert to your table.
afsanehsamim
yes TomBon ,i did it ... but there are no values in my database.
TomBon
can you post your insert command here?
