I am trying to create a form and have it available on the web for inputting new information.  How do I create the page using Active Server Pages?  I have tried but it does not work the way I am doing it. Do you have any advice for me?

What exactly is the problem?
You can set the form up using straight HTML in your ASP page.  Then you set the action property of the form to another ASP Page or the same one.
If you set the action to another page, then on that page you use this type of syntax to retrieve the responses from the form:
Response.Form("T1")
where T1 is the name of the form control

If you want the same page to handle the response from the form then you have to have a hidden control and set its starting value to say 1.  This way when the page first load you can check the value of this hidden control, as above, if it is equal to one then you have to handle the reponse from the form, as above.  Otherwise you have to draw the form.

Let me know if you need more clarification or you have a more specific problem.
