New to this--asp page is not submitting to access database upon submit

I have set up the DSN connection, done the recordset bindings for the form, have the recordset for the server behavior.  What actually tells the form to submit to the database, and what tells the form to go to a thankyou.asp page upon submit?

    I always thought about it and today, after having a look at your question, I thought I must search about that. So I finally decided to post my comment.
    There is only one problem.
    Does anybody know the way we can work in the same way with dsn less connections as we do with dsn connections in dreamwever. If so, then your problem is easily solved.

    It was in the security setting for the database.  Guest account must have write permission.
