Pretty self explanatory. Want to pass more than one value using a drop down list.

eg. Client chooses Jo Blo from list and both Jo Blo's name and age will be passed to the ASP.

Thanks in advance

The easiest way is to do this:

<option value="age_value|name_value">name_value

then on the page that processes the form simply split the form item value to get the reuslts.


<%on error resume next
namearray = split(request.form("name"), "|")
Age = namearray(0)
Name = namearray(1)

To be honest with you mkill22 I had thought of that myself. I had hoped for an htm solution but if this is absolutely the only way to do it then so be it.

Thanks very much.
