Accessing posted form data directly from database?


Is it possible to access data from posted forms from the EPiServer database directly (ie without even setting up the site)?

From what I understand, the posted form data is stored in the table tblItem. However, when looking at it in SQL Server Management Stuido it seems like the data is encrypted. Is there a way to access this data without setting up the site?

(I'm looking to extract all posted data from a certain form during a given period of time.)


Thanks a lot in advance for any help!

The data are stored in the tblXFormData table. You could acess the information from that table. But, what is the point of accessing data without setting up a site? How will you get data to read? ;-)

Another solution could be to use the framework for unit testing to mock up page objects which you could use to extract xForm data. (Never tested, but sounds like a plan :) )
