Again..no..it overwrites everytime.  You'd need to use a database of some sort and add new records to it with each form submission.

Great...that certainly makes life easier  8-)


You may want to check out www.asp101.com and get more code snippets and tutorials, but here is the basic idea.

First, you need a database, such as Microsoft Access.  For our purposes here, we'll call it test.mdb

The database has a table called tblData with fields called Name and Comments.

We make a page called Form.asp

The code for that page is:
<%
set conn = server.createobject("adodb.connection")
conn.ConnectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("../database/test.mdb")&";"
conn.Open

sql = "SELECT * from tblData"

   Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
   rs.Open sql, conn, 3, 3

addSQL = "INSERT INTO tblData (name, comments) VALUES ('" & request.form("name") & "','" & request.form("comments") & "')"


     If (Request("Add") <>"") Then
          conn.execute addSQL
response.write "Your comments have been added!  Thank You!"
End If
%>
<form method="POST" action="Form.asp" name="FormSubmission">
            <table>
      <tr>
        <td width="83%" bgcolor="#FFFFFF<font face="Arial">Add Your Comments Here:</font></a></td>
        <td width="17%" align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">&nbsp;</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
        <td width="83%" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" valign="top">
          <p><font face="Arial"><b>Your Name:<br>
          </b><input type="text" name="Name" size="59"></font></p>
          <p><font face="Arial"><b>Comments:<br>
          </b>&nbsp; <textarea rows="10" name="Comments" cols="47"></textarea></font></td>
        <td width="17%" align="center" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" valign="bottom"><input type="submit" value="Add New" name="Add"></td>
      </tr></table>
</form>
<%rs.close
conn.close
%>

I just wrote this off the top of my head, so typos may create errors.  In any case, you get the idea..I hope.
