Accessing Data Submitted by Form

After submitting a form that is writing to a database and sending an email, how do I program the form to generate some type of link that when accessed will retrieve the data entered and allow the viewer to enter more information and resubmit the form thereby sending another email.  This process could happen multiple times.

ASP/VBScript using an Access database...

I know how to write to the database and generate an email when clicking submit.  But the problem I'm facing is that the recipients of the email need the opportunity to input information, which needs to also be written to the database and another email needs to be generated.  It's an ongoing process.  

I need to continually write to the same record in the database and ensure that an email is generated everytime the record is updated.

well the way you would do it, is u post to the same page all over again... here's a short example:

page.asp:
<%
dim t1
t1=request.form("t1")
if request.form("sending")="true" then%>
'send the email here... and update the database
'then below, load the form (but filled with the posted data) if any!
end if
%>
<html><head></head><body>
<form action="page.asp" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="sending" value="true">
<input type="text" name="t1" value="<%=t1%>">
<input type="submit" value="Save">
</body></html>

something like this, if u need further clarifications, let me know!!

cheers, dan
