What is the best way to enter information?

Hi all,

Can you please help me with this..
I have an Interface which allows the users to enter the:
1- Shipement Number
2- Number of Assets

When the user clicks on continue, he will be prompted to another interface.
In this interface, he/she should enter information about each asset
Number of records should match the number of assets
This information includes (asset type, serial Number, asset tag number,.......)

I was wondering if you know the best way to design this interface
I mean..Can I have a datagrid where the user can enter the information for each asset
Number of rows in the datagrid should match the number of assets entered

Or can I have text boxes for each asset where the user can enter information

Please let me know if something is not clear

Waiting for your replies
thanx in advance

    rather than dynamically creating controls (textboxes) based on the number of assets, I would recommend you use a datagrid.
