How do I get an ASP form to submit to multiple tables in a database?

I know how to submit it to one table in the database, but I am having trouble with multiple tables.

You help is greatly appreciated.

Due to the fact that ASP has a VB like programming language wich has the ability to access database-tables, it's just a question of opening the correct table and set the values to it's fields.

You can write (in your access database) a juntion table or a macro and then send using ASP a command to the database to perform the function... In hte function, you have it copy from one table to another...

or, you could do something like this...

initiate the databse connection...

<%
rs.add
rs.fields("Name") = theName
rs.update
rs.close
%>
initiate another databse connection
<%
rs.add
rs.fields("name") = TheName
rs.update
rs.close
%>

That would update both tables and then display the rest of the page...
