Hi,
I have just noticed that if you name a form, the value of the button doesn't get passed in Request.form where other controls do ( e.g. input). Is there a way to get the value passed?

The original page used a submit button without a formname but I have to do some client side validation and have replaced the submit button with a button running a VBScript sub to do the checking and then submitting the page. I need to name the form to be able to address the form values.

Kind Regards
Mathew Glass
