the function called from contract by web3 isn’t working

I’m doing the contract and wanna connect to the js and html by web3. When I try doing the function saveData in the contract save.sol, the ganache network didn’t create the new block, but it should do.

why the contract.methods.saveData(date, resource, mycalculate, material) in index.js didn’t work?

the version of web3 is 1.5.1

the codes are shown in the following


<!DOCTYPE html>

          <div style="text-align: center;">
            <button type="submit" class="btn btn-primary" id="button_formCarbonEmission">Save</button>
            <a href="./home.html" class="btn btn-primary">Back</a>

            const form = document.querySelector('form')
            const submitButton = document.querySelector('#button_formCarbonEmission')
            submitButton.addEventListener('click', function onSubmitButtonClicked(event){
            form.addEventListener('submit', function onFormSubmit(event){

    <script src="../function/web3.min.js"></script>
    <script src="../function/index.js"></script>


// Initialize Web3
var web3 = new Web3('http://localhost:7545');

// Set Account
web3.eth.defaultAccount = '0x16E15b184F39c4fBE1A4B29052CE018c5748610B';

// Set Contract Abi
var ABI = [myabi];

// Set Contract Address
var contractAddress = 'myaddr'; // Add Your Contract address here!!!

// Set the Contract
var contract = new web3.eth.Contract(ABI, contractAddress);

// get the current time 
var today = new Date();
var date = today.getFullYear()+'-' + (today.getMonth()+1) + '-' + today.getDate() + '-'
today.getHours() + ":" + today.getMinutes() + ":" + today.getSeconds;

//get the formCarbonEmission data
const submitBtn = document.getElementById("button_formCarbonEmission");
submitBtn.addEventListener('click', processFormData);

contract.methods.test().call().then(console.log);//work normally

function processFormData() {
  const form = document.forms['formCarbonEmission'];
  const material = form.elements.material.value;
  const resource = form.elements.resource.value;
  const mycalculate = form.elements.mycalculate.value;

    //save the data
  contract.methods.saveData(date, resource, mycalculate, material).call(); **//this function isn't work**

        uint emission;
    mapping (string => UserInfo) users;
    function test() public view returns(string memory) {
        return b;

    function saveData(string memory input_time, string memory input_source, string memory input_mycalculate, uint input_material) public {
        users[input_source].time = input_time;
        if (keccak256(abi.encodePacked(input_mycalculate)) == keccak256(abi.encodePacked(b)))
            users[input_source].emission = input_material * 3 / 2;//solidity isn't support integer
            users[input_source].emission = input_material * 5 / 2;//solidity isn't support integer
/*     function get() public view returns (string memory, uint, string memory) {

    } */ 
    function search(string memory input_source) public view returns (uint, string memory) {
        return (users[input_source].emission, users[input_source].time);


I solved it by creating the file “web3.js” and injected the file to the index.js

and added the account of savedata:

contract.methods.saveData(date, resource, mycalculate, material).send(
