<CENTER><table>
<tr>
<td align=left valign=top><br><a href="surveyP1.asp"><input type="image" src="but_back.gif" alt="back"></a></td>
<td align=right valign=top><br><input type="image" src="but_next.gif" alt="Submit changes"></td>
</tr>
</table></CENTER>

when I hit the back button it does not go to surveyP1.asp......why?

When I hit the submit buton it goes to the next page, but how does it know this as I did'nt specify the URL?

You can't put inputs inside links. Try:

<a href="surveyP1.asp"><img src="but_back.gif" alt="back" style="border-style: none;"></a>

(And as for the submit button, I'm guessing you did specify it (in the correct place - the <form> action attribute) but didn't copy that code across.)

(and an external style sheet is preferred for the CSS in there)

That's great thanks...

What do you mean when you say:
(and an external style sheet is preferred for the CSS in there)

Can you give me an example?

Hi PieP,

1.-

You must use a "<img src ..... this way:
<td align=left valign=top><br><a href="surveyP1.asp"><img src="but_back.gif" alt="back"></a></td>

2.- Cause it's a <input type="image" ....

img { border-style: none; } in the style sheet perhaps. Depends on circumstances.
