Multiple SUBMIT buttons that are images

OK, I have 4 submit buttons that are:

<input type="image" src="../img/updatedisplay.gif" name="submitbutton" value="Update Display" >
<input type="image" src="../img/updateavail.gif" name="submitbutton" value="Update Availability" >
<input type="image" src="../img/updatejobname.gif" name="submitbutton" value="Update JobName" >
<input type="image" src="../img/updatejobdescription.gif" name="submitbutton" value="Update JobDescription">

Obviously they are under their specific form fields.  

The form posts to itself via:  <form name="editjob" action="editjob.asp" method="post">

At the very top of the page I have the following ASP code to find out which submit button was pressed:

Call GetConnection ()
Call GetRecordSet(objRS)
Call GetCommandObject(objCommand)

      If request("submitbutton") = "Update Display" then
            objCommand.CommandText = "Update tblJobs SET newofficeDisplay = '"& request("display") & "' WHERE JobID = " & request("JobID") &" "
            Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
      elseif request("submitbutton") = "Update Availability" then
            objCommand.CommandText = "Update tblJobs SET applicationLive = '"& request("applicationLive") & "' WHERE JobID = " & request("JobID") &" "
            Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
      elseif request("submitbutton") = "Update JobName" then
            objCommand.CommandText = "Update tblJobs SET JobName = '"& request("JobName") & "' WHERE JobID = " & request("JobID") &" "
            Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
      elseif request("submitbutton") = "Update JobDescription" then
            Dim myControl1, myFieldContents
            Set myControl1 = GetObject ("script:" & Server.MapPath ("/RichEdit/ASPRichEdit.WSC"))
            myControl1.Name = "JobDescription"
            myFieldContents = myControl1.GetSafeFieldContents
            objCommand.CommandText = "Update tblJobs SET jobdescription = '"& myFieldContents & "' WHERE JobID = " & request("JobID") &" "
            Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
      end if


Now, this work before when it was just a plain SUBMIT form button.  Now that I have added the image for the button it doesn't work.  Any ideas?

Thanks!

try something like this

<form name="editjob" action="editjob.asp" method="post">

<input type="image" src="../img/updatedisplay.gif" name="submitbutton" value="Update Display" onclick='document.editjob.dummy.value="Update Display"'>
<input type="image" src="../img/updateavail.gif" name="submitbutton" value="Update Availability" onclick='document.editjob.dummy.value="Update Availability"'>
<input type="image" src="../img/updatejobname.gif" name="submitbutton" value="Update JobName" onclick='document.editjob.dummy.value="Update JobName"'>
<input type="image" src="../img/updatejobdescription.gif" name="submitbutton" value="Update JobDescription" onclick='document.editjob.dummy.value="Update JobDescription"'>

<input type="hidden" name="dummy">

</form>



then for your editjob.asp, change to this

If request("dummy") = "Update Display" then
         objCommand.CommandText = "Update tblJobs SET newofficeDisplay = '"& request("display") & "' WHERE JobID = " & request("JobID") &" "
         Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
    elseif request("dummy") = "Update Availability" then
         objCommand.CommandText = "Update tblJobs SET applicationLive = '"& request("applicationLive") & "' WHERE JobID = " & request("JobID") &" "
         Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
    elseif request("dummy") = "Update JobName" then
         objCommand.CommandText = "Update tblJobs SET JobName = '"& request("JobName") & "' WHERE JobID = " & request("JobID") &" "
         Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
    elseif request("dummy") = "Update JobDescription" then
         Dim myControl1, myFieldContents
         Set myControl1 = GetObject ("script:" & Server.MapPath ("/RichEdit/ASPRichEdit.WSC"))
         myControl1.Name = "JobDescription"
         myFieldContents = myControl1.GetSafeFieldContents
         objCommand.CommandText = "Update tblJobs SET jobdescription = '"& myFieldContents & "' WHERE JobID = " & request("JobID") &" "
         Set objRS = objCommand.Execute
    end if

Submit is not the problem...it is passing the value that is the issue.

It is not passing ANY value at all.
