How to call an ASP page when a user click a number

 I create a search-result page from an ASP page.

  Instead of just viewing an next and an prev button I
  want to add text like this: "<< 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 >>".
  The text is not static and will change according to
  what the user selects.
 
  When the user click one of the numbers I want to things
  to happen automatically:
  1. assign the selected number or "Prev" or "Next" to a
     hidden variable in the form.
  2. submit the form and call the same asp-page

  I'm familiar with using the POST action of a form, but
  when I try to generate buttons (n number) to represent
  the numbers nothing happens. When I just add a number
  as plain text there is not an event-code to manipulate.
 
  Any suggestions???

  I use FrontPage98 and VBScript

Can you post the code which is generating your buttons?

If you put the text within a <DIV></DIV> tag, that can give you an onClick() event, and you can call the appropriate ASP from there.

Here's a sample:
<HTML>
<BODY>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
   function dostuff() {
      alert("test message")
   }
</SCRIPT>
<DIV onClick="dostuff()">text here</DIV>
</BODY>
</HTML>

Two things:
  First.
  I make up the numbers "<< 3 4 5 6 7 >>" dynamically from
  within an asp Page. I don't know what the numbers are but
  they are stored in two variables. firstPage and lastPage.
  to generate the numbers I have to use a loop like this:
  for i = firstPage to lastPage

    <DIV onClick="dostuff( i )"> i </DIV>
 
  next

  this did not work....my syntax is wrong ...will upgrade to
  100 point if you returns right syntaks
 
  second. When I move the pointer over one of the generated
          numbers I would like it to change.. indicating that
          something will happen when you click it.
          Is this possible?

This worked for me:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
      function dostuff(i) {
      document.write (i);
      }
</SCRIPT>

<FORM>
<%for i = 1 to 5%>
<SPAN STYLE="cursor: hand" onClick='dostuff(<%= i%>)'><%= i%></SPAN>            
<%next%>
</FORM>
