    Sounds like to need to get a book. "Beginning ASP" from Wrox is OK.

    Re: I have that book

    There is a whole chapter on forms, as I recall.

    You create an HTML page with a form in it identified by <FORM>...</FORM>.

    In the <FORM> tag you specify the name of the page to be called when the form is submitted, e.g.
    <FORM METHOD="POST" ACTION="anotherpage.asp"

    The fields within the form are defined using the <INPUT> tag, e.g.
    <INPUT TYPE="TEXT" NAME="field1">

    The fields within the form are available to the called ASP script like this: Request.Form("field1")

    I don't have a full example to hand, but you should be able to find the reference in your book now, I hope!

    One of the best resources I have found is www.w3schools.org which is linked to the w3c (the people who make most of the internet's standards such as XML, HTML, etc).

    This link is directly to the section on forms, and explains their basic to advanced usage with examples;
