ASP.NET Insert into database using stored procedure

Hi Experts,

(using DW CS3, I know its no good but please bear with me)

I have a form that I have created with up to 5 rows of information

Firstname,Surname,DOB etc
Firstname2,Surname2,DOB2 etc
Firstname3,Surname3,DOB3 etc
Firstname4,Surname4,DOB4  etc
Firstname5,Surname5,DOB5 etc

When I submit to "add.aspx" I have the following code snippet.

What is the code syntax to add all 5 lots of data into the same stored procedure?

Can I simply copy and paste the code 5 times and change the Request.Form names?

Thanks experts.

with (ordinary) stored procedures, you can only submit one lot of data at a time - usually you have call the stored procedure once for each row, or make the stored procedure accept parameters for all rows at once, which would be highly impractical if there were more than few rows to insert at once.

Mortaza DoulatyCommented:

As DarkoLord said, you have to submit each row once for that stored procedure.
Or you can write an other stored procedure that has five insert into statement and parameters for each field of each row.
