Hi,
I have a text box on a page and a command button. When user enter data into the textbox and then click on the button, a search will be done in the database and data will be returned and displayed on the page. I am able to return the data but how do I set up the click event to tahe the data from the textbox and insert it into my sql string. This is the code I have so far

you should use form submit. Put <form> tag on the form and replace your Button with Submit button. Set the form's action to your page name.asp. For example if you mage is result.asp, have <form name="form1" method="post" action="result.asp">:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Search_Result</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">




</head>

<body>
<p>&nbsp;</p>

<table width="210" border="0" align="center" bordercolor="#FFFFFF" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">
  <tr>
    <td>Search by Invoice Number </td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td><form action="result.asp" method="post" name="invoice" id="invoice">
      <input name="invoice" type="text" class="title" id="invoice" value="123456" size="10" maxlength="10">
      <input name="Button1" type="submit" class="button" align="right" onmouseover="this.className='buttonon'" onmouseout="this.className='button'" value="Search">
    </form></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
  </tr>
</table>

</body>

In the form tab give the name or the script .. right now you have given result.. I assume your page name is result.asp so change the form tag as follows.

<form action="result.asp" method="post" name="invoice" id="invoice">

Now in the SQL query replace 12345 with the value from textbox as follows

' -- Our SQL Statement

strSQL = "select * from tinvoice where inv_no =" & Request.form("invoice")

Now change the type of the button from "button" to "submit" as follows

<input name="Button" type="submit" class="button" align="right" onmouseover="this.className='buttonon'" onmouseout="this.className='button'" value="Search">


Hope this should help you :)
Cheers

I have an objection. The chosen comment doesn't fullfill the answer. It has not described how to take the data in the query after the form is submitted.

Thanks
