Hi,
I have a HTM page that I have placed two radio buttons, a text box and a submit button onto.One of the radio buttons has a value of xxx the other a value of yyy.I want to set it up so that if I select radio button with yyy then press the submit button it goes to a certain asp page e.g. "1.asp" and passes the text I have put into the text box but if radio button xxx is selected when the submit button is pressed it goes to a different asp page e.g "2.asp" and still passes the text from the text box.

I can get it to submit the text info to one of the asp pages by putting the name of the page in the action field of the form post but cant see how to get it to change?
I am using dream weaver 4
ANy help or suggestions would be much appreciated

Combine the functions of the two ASP pages in to a single page by wapping them in a big if statement.

I don't know ASP but this PHP example should give you an idea as to how to implement it:

if ($myRadio == 1) {
    do_this();
    do_that();
    do_the_other();
} else {
    do_somthing_else();
    do_another_thing();
    think_of_more_boring_function_names();
}

you can try this it works for me:

<form action="choosepage.asp" method="post">
<input type="radio" name="PageChoice" Value="Page1"> Page 1<BR>
<input type="radio" name="PageChoice" value="Page2"> Page 2<BR>
name<input type="text" name="name">
<input type="submit" value="Choose Page">&nbsp;&nbsp;<input type="reset"></form>

ChoosePage.asp

<%
  Option Explicite
  Dim strChoice
  Dim strName

  strChoice= Request.Form("PageChoice")
  strName= Request.Form("name")

  if strChoice= "Page1" then
     Response.Redirect "page1.asp?name="+strName
  Else
     Response.Redirect "page2.asp?name="+strName
  End if
%>

This should also work.
I check it in my machine and it work.

<HTML>
<HEAD>
   <SCRIPT LANGUAGE=javascript>
         function SelectPage()
         {
             if (document.YourForm.Radio(0).checked)
                 document.YourForm.action = "1.asp"
             else    
                 if (document.YourForm.Radio(1).checked)
                     document.YourForm.action = "2.asp"
         }
   </SCRIPT>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
    <FORM NAME="YourForm" METHOD="GET" OnSubmit="JavaScript:SelectPage()">
        <INPUT NAME="Radio" TYPE="radio" VALUE="xxx"> <BR>
        <INPUT NAME="Radio" TYPE="radio" VALUE="yyy"> <BR>
        <INPUT NAME="TextBox" TYPE="text"> <BR>
        <INPUT TYPE="submit">
    </FORM>
</BODY>
</HTML>

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the
moderators on its resolution in a week or two. I appreciate any comments
that would help me to make a recommendation.
<note>
   In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear
   to me that it has value as a PAQ.  Silence = you don't care
