    Re: strange!!

    One way this condition can occur is when you have *two* nested forms, and
    the outer form's method has not been defined, so it defaults to "GET". The
    solution is to remove the outer, unneeded form tag. Check your HTML. If
    that's not the problem, post your code and someone here will help you.
    Here's an example.

    <%@ Language=VBScript %>
    <%
    if Request.QueryString("junk") <> "" then
    Response.Write "Querystring(junk) " & Request.QueryString("junk") & "<br>"
    elseif Request.Form("junk") <> "" then
    Response.Write "Form(junk) " & Request.Form("junk") & "<br>"
    else
    Response.Write "Enter some text in the field and click Submit<br>"
    end if
    %>
    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <META NAME="GENERATOR" Content="Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0">
    </HEAD>
    <BODY>
    <form>
    <form method="post">
    <input type="text" name="junk">
    <input type="submit" value="Submit">
    </form>
    </form>
    <P>&nbsp;</P>

    </BODY>
    </HTML>

    Re: strange!!


    Thanks friend.

    I just found out the reason for this. It was because i missed one
    closing quote mark for the action attribute.

    Thanks for your kind help.
