I'm new to JavaScript and I'm at the 1st stages of learning.  I've got the script below that does almost everything I want but, I want the textboxes in a line rather than on top of each other?  The submitting part works fine, its just if I move the textboxes next to each other I get error.

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
function addRow(tbl){
 var tb = tbl.firstChild;
 var ind = tb.childNodes.length;
 var nr = document.getElementById('cloneThis').cloneNode(true);
 nr.style.display = "block";
 with(nr.firstChild.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes){
   item(0).childNodes[1].innerHTML = "<input type=text name=name" + ind + " />";
   item(1).childNodes[1].innerHTML = "<input type=text name=phone" + ind + " />"
 }
 tb.appendChild(nr);
 if (tbl.rows.length > 1) {
   document.getElementById('delRow').disabled = false;
 }
 document.forms[0].count.value = ind + 1;
}

function deletRow(tbl){
  if (tbl.rows.length > 1) {
    tblRow = tbl.deleteRow(tbl.rows.length-1);
    //           alert(tbl.rows.length);
  }
}
function disablit(tbl){
  if(tbl.rows.length == 1) {
    document.getElementById('delRow').disabled = true;
  }
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<%
  count = request.form("count")
  for i = 0 to cint(count) - 1
    name = request.form("name" & i)
    phone = request.form("phone" & i)
    response.write "name = " & name & "<br>"
    response.write "phone = " & phone & "<br>"
  next
   
%>

<form name="addAccount" method="post" >
<input type=hidden name="count" value="1">
<table id="purchase">
<tr id='cloneThis'>
<td>
<table>
<tr>
<td>Name</td>
<td colspan=5><input type="text" name="name0"></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Phone</td>
<td colspan=5><input type="text" name="phone0"</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td></tr>
</table>
<input type=button onclick="addRow(document.getElementById('purchase'))" value="Add">
<input type=button id="delRow" name="delRow" onclick="deletRow(document.getElementById('purchase'));disablit(addContact);" value="Delete" disabled>
<br>

<input type="submit" value="submit">

Is this what you are looking for,

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
function addRow(tbl){
 var tb = tbl.firstChild;
 var ind = tb.childNodes.length;
 var nr = document.getElementById('cloneThis').cloneNode(true);

   item(0).childNodes[1].innerHTML = "<input type=text name=name" + ind + " />";
   item(0).childNodes[1].innerHTML = "<input type=text name=phone" + ind + " />"
 }
 tb.appendChild(nr);
 if (tbl.rows.length > 1) {
   document.getElementById('delRow').disabled = false;
 }
 document.forms[0].count.value = ind + 1;
}

function deletRow(tbl){

The text boxes are side by side by when you click on Add the phone entry isn't blank it copies what you put in the top box, also when you submit they are seperated by comma, which I dont want.

Sorry gifford_c, it was my mistake not changing the childnodes index.  try this,

<html>
<head>
<script language="javascript">
function addRow(tbl){
 var tb = tbl.firstChild;
 var ind = tb.childNodes.length;
 var nr = document.getElementById('cloneThis').cloneNode(true);
 nr.style.display = "block";
 with(nr.firstChild.firstChild.firstChild.childNodes){
   item(0).childNodes[1].innerHTML = "<input type=text name=name" + ind + " />";
   item(0).childNodes[3].innerHTML = "<input type=text name=phone" + ind + " />"
 }
 tb.appendChild(nr);
 if (tbl.rows.length > 1) {
   document.getElementById('delRow').disabled = false;
 }
 document.forms[0].count.value = ind + 1;
}

function deletRow(tbl){
  if (tbl.rows.length > 1) {
    tblRow = tbl.deleteRow(tbl.rows.length-1);
    //           alert(tbl.rows.length);
  }
}
function disablit(tbl){
  if(tbl.rows.length == 1) {
    document.getElementById('delRow').disabled = true;
  }
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<%
  count = request.form("count")
  for i = 0 to cint(count) - 1
    name = request.form("name" & i)
    phone = request.form("phone" & i)
    response.write "name = " & name & "<br>"
    response.write "phone = " & phone & "<br>"
  next
   
%>

<form name="addAccount" method="post" >
<input type=hidden name="count" value="1">
<table id="purchase">
<tr id='cloneThis'>
<td>
<table border=1>
<tr>
<td>Name</td>
<td colspan=5><input type="text" name="name0"></td>
<td>Phone</td>
<td colspan=5><input type="text" name="phone0"</td>
</tr>
</table>
</td></tr>
</table>
<input type=button onclick="addRow(document.getElementById('purchase'))" value="Add">
<input type=button id="delRow" name="delRow" onclick="deletRow(document.getElementById('purchase'));disablit(addContact);" value="Delete" disabled>
