HTML and ASP Forms - problems with spaces

Hi,

I am putting together a set of pages that collect data from a form (page 1), confirm the data (page 2) and give confirmation of submission (page 3).

I am having trouble if there is a space between the data entered (eg. "Not Issued" only gets saved as "Not"). It works fine if I don't confirm the data ie. submit it straight to the database. Where is my code going wrong?

Example of code on page 1:

<TABLE bgColor=white border=0 cellPadding=2 cellSpacing=1 width="400" height="70">
  <TR>
    <TD width="500" height="20"><font face="Arial Narrow">Location:</font></TD>
    <TD><font face="Arial"><input type = "text" input name="location" size="30"></TD>
  </TR>
</TABLE>

Page 2:
<HEAD>
      LOCATION = request.form("location")
</HEAD>
<BODY>
  <tr>
    <td width="50%" style="border-style: none; border-width: medium">
    <font face="Arial Narrow">Location:</font></td>
    <td width="50%" style="border-style: none; border-width: medium"><font face="Arial Narrow"><%=location%></font><input type="hidden" name=location value=<%=location%>>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>

This works fine even if the location has more than one word

Page 3:
<HEAD>      
<%
LOCATION = request.form("LOCATION")
SQL = "INSERT INTO TABLENAME (Location) VALUES ('"&location&"')"
DbObj.Execute(SQL)
%>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<font face="Arial Narrow">The parking space location <%=location%><input type="hidden" name=location value=<%=location%>>&nbsp;</td> has been added.</font></p>
</BODY>

This part does not work properly if there is more than one word. Only the first word shows up on this page.

Can anyone help please?
