I'm not sure I understand the question, but you can have 2 seperate pages with html forms and have them post to the same asp page (<form action="destination.asp" method="post">).  You can then use IF...THENs to distinguish the actions from each page (IF request.form("page1field") <> "" THEN ...).

Hi derrida,

If you have two forms on a page, only one of them will be processed when you hit its submit button.  The same *code* can be used to process both forms, you just need to write it in such a way that it tests to see which form was submitted and branch appropriately.

YOu could set a hidden field in each form and use the same send page. Just test for the hidden field with an if statement in each form to validate wich form was submitted.
