ASP not recognizing dynamic values

Okay, I have 2 select boxes, one is populated by the other thru a commonly used javascript. That works without any problems. Now I need to insert the values from the newly populated select box into a sql tbl. this is where we run into a problem. It seems that ASP & SQL will not recognize the values from the dynamicly generated select list. Here is the code. There is a hidden field to trigger the if statement. The kicker is if I just use the single drop down (list1) to insert diredctly from there is no problems, so I know that it's a recognition problem.

<!--Insert Statement//-->
if Request.Form("action") = "pick" then

if(Request.Form("grpName") <> "") then courseGrpInsert__MMColParam1 = Request.Form("grpName")
if(Request.Form("grpIdentNumber") <> "") then grpIdentNumber = Request.Form("grpIdentNumber")

Dim arrCourse
arrCourse = Request.Form("list2")
arrCourse = Split(arrCourse,",")

For i = 0 to uBound(arrCourse)
'SQL Insert Command here

set courseGrpInsert = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
courseGrpInsert.ActiveConnection = MM_Employees_STRING
courseGrpInsert.CommandText = "INSERT INTO  trainingGroups (grpIdentNumber,grpName,course_id )  VALUES (" + "'" + trim(grpIdentNumber) + "'" + "," + "'" + trim(courseGrpInsert__MMColParam1) + "'" + "," + trim(arrCourse(i)) + ")"
courseGrpInsert.CommandType = 1
courseGrpInsert.CommandTimeout = 0
courseGrpInsert.Prepared = true


end if

<!--End Insert//-->

<!--Code for the two select boxes//-->

            <td align="center" valign="middle">
                  <select class = "db" multiple size="10" name="list2" style="width:275">
            <td align="center" valign="middle">
                  <input type="button" value="Add"
                   onclick="moveOptions(this.form.list1, this.form.list2);" />
                  <input type="button" value="Delete"
                   onclick="moveOptions(this.form.list2, this.form.list1);" />
            <td align="center" valign="middle">
            Course List
            <td align="center" valign="middle">
                  <select class = "db" multiple size="10" name="list1" style="width:275">

                        While (NOT courseList.EOF)
                    <option value="<%=(courseList.Fields.Item("course_id").Value)%>"><%=(courseList.Fields.Item("Course").Value)%></option>
                        If (courseList.CursorType > 0) Then
                        End If
<!--end select boxes//-->

which is database you use, and how does this page work, It raise excception?

you can collect the list item before user submit the form :

1.add a hidden field name list3
2.onsubmit action(javascript):
list3.value = '';
  list3.value = list3.value + list1.option[i].value + ","  

3.change asp to
arrCourse = Request.Form("list3")
arrCourse = Split(arrCourse,",")
