Flash 8 FORM HELP!

Alright, so here’s the deal.
I have a form made in flash including the components,
input fields, dropdowns, check boxes, and a sumbit button.
I however do not know where to label the components variable names nor do i know where to even start as far as making a php script (that can wait)
what i do need help with is, making sure my variables are labeled correctly and grouped together properly and perhaps a little push in the right direction ads afar as scripting a php for the form.
Any guidance would be greatly apprechiated!!!
i can attatch the fla file if needed (just ask).
thanks in advance
