Html table formating in ASP HELP!

My first project in ASP and definately in the dark. Designing a site for our insurance agency. Wanting to do a small amount of basic rating there. From the first page "numberof.asp" we will use 2 combo boxes "cboDrivers" and "cboVehicles" to collect the quantity of each. Upon submit we would like the receiving page "info.asp" to show sets of form question fields for each number of drivers and vehicles choosen from the first page. I am no sure of the difficulty of all of this so if more points are worthy just LMK.

in numberof.asp page you can do this.
<FORM action="info.asp" method="post">
<SELECT id=select1 name="cboDrivers">
<option>1</option>
<option>2</option>
</select>
<SELECT id=select1 name="cboVehicles">
<option>1</option>
<option>2</option>
</select>
<input type=submit name="Send Info">
</FORM>
on the info.asp page
request the sended values
<%
drivers= request.form("cboDrivers")
vehicles = request.form("cboVehicles")
%>

I don't know if thats what you wanted though.

Continuing from Marine...

Once ou have drivers and vehicles, you can do this:

<%
For CurDrive = 1 to Drivers
  Response.write "Driver " & CurDriver
    ' Rest of fields...
Next

For CurVehicle = 1 to Vehicles
    Response.write "Vehicle " & CurDriver
    ' Rest of fields...
Next
%>

I'm sure there must be more than that on the first page. But Marine's answer is perfectly correct.

I have modified Maries post and added a bunch of info to help you see a bit more.
I also over-commented this so you can understand it better.

Try this:
---------------- BEGIN NumberOf.asp ---------------
<HTML><BODY>
<FORM action="info.asp" method="post">
<%'Select number of drivers%>
  Number of Drivers
    <SELECT name="cboDrivers">
      <option>1</option>
      <option>2</option>
    </select>
<%'New line and a blank line%>
  <br><br>
<%'Select number of vehicles%>
  Number of Vehicles
    <SELECT name="cboVehicles">
      <option>1</option>
      <option>2</option>
    </SELECT>
<%'New line and a blank line%>
  <br><br>
<%'Display button causing info to be sent to info.asp%>
  <INPUT type="submit" name="Continue">
</FORM>
</BODY></HTML>
---------------- END NumberOf.asp ---------------

---------------- BEGIN Info.asp ---------------
<%@ Language="VBScript"%>
<%OPTION EXPLICIT%>
<%
'Declare Variables
    Dim intDrivers
    Dim intVehicles
    Dim i
'Get number of drivers and vehicles
      intDrivers = CInt(Request.Form("cboDrivers"))
      intVehicles = CInt(Request.Form("cboVehicles"))
%>
<HTML><BODY>
You selected <%=intDrivers%> driver and <%=intVehicles%> vehicles.<br><br>
<FORM action="step3.asp" method="post">
<hr>
<b><u>Drivers:</b></u><br>
<%'Display the driver info boxes%>
 <TABLE align="center">
      <%For i = 1 to intDrivers%>
            <tr><td colspan="2"><b><u>Driver #<%=i%>:</u></b></td></tr>
            <tr><td>Name:</td>
                  <td><INPUT type="text" name="txtName"></td></tr>
            <tr><td>Age:</td>
                  <td><INPUT type="text" name="txtAge"></td></tr>
            <tr><td colspan="2">&nbsp;</td></tr>
      <%Next%>
 </TABLE><br><hr>
<b><u>Vehicles:</b></u><br>
<%'Display the vehicle info boxes%>
 <TABLE align="center">
      <%For i = 1 to intVehicles%>
            <tr><td colspan="2"><b><u>Vehicle #<%=i%>:</u></b></td></tr>
            <tr><td>Year:</td>
                  <td><INPUT type="text" name="txtYear"></td></tr>
            <tr><td>Make:</td>
                  <td><INPUT type="text" name="txtMake"></td></tr>
            <tr><td>Model:</td>
                  <td><INPUT type="text" name="txtModel"></td></tr>
            <tr><td colspan="2">&nbsp;</td></tr>
      <%Next%>
 </TABLE><hr>
</FORM>
</BODY></HTML>
---------------- END NumberOf.asp ---------------

That completely answers your question and ought to get you going. Good luck.

Ick, sorry about the formatting being so bad. I didn't 'respace' info.asp in InterDev (tested it) before I dropped it in here.

Pull it into your editor and you can quickly reformat it to enhance readability.
