I am using the article found here
http://www.eggheadcafe.com/articles/20021207.asp
(The downloaded code, shows how to go from aspx to asp)

I am sending form data from an aspx page to an asp page.
I want it to populate a form on an asp page.  
I can send the session data ok.
But how can I get it to populate existing form fields instead of just writing to a page?
Here is the code that will write it to the page.


1) from the button click on aspx page (Works)
 public void Button1_Click (object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
     Session["name"] = TextBox1.Text;
      Session["email"] = TextBox2.Text;
      Session["DestPage"] = "Finalpage.asp";
      Server.Transfer("ASPXTOASP.aspx");

    }

2) it goes to a "middleman" page ASPXTOASP.aspx (Works)

<script language="C#" runat="server">

private void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e){
//We grab all the session variable names/values and stick them in a form
// and then we submit the form to our receiving ASP page (ASPTOASPX.asp)...

Response.Write( "<form name=t id=t action=ASPXTOASP.asp method=post>" );
foreach(object it in Session.Contents)
{
Response.Write("<input type=hidden name=" + it.ToString());
Response.Write( " value=" + Session[it.ToString()].ToString() + " >");
}
if (Request.QueryString["destpage"] !=null)
Response.Write("<input type=hidden name=destpage value=" +Request.QueryString["destpage"].ToString() +">");
Response.Write("</FORM>");
Response.Write("<scr" + "ipt>t.submit();</scr" + "ipt>");
}
</script>



3) Here is the final page. It will write the previously submitted contents to the page.
But I need to have it populate existing textfields.
How can I do this?
<%

Response.Write("This is FinalPage.asp<BR>")
Response.Write "Shared Session Variable Names/Values between ASP.NET and  classic ASP:<BR>"

for each x in Session.Contents
  Response.Write(x & "=" & Session.Contents(x) & "<br />")
next

For the "value" atttribute of the existing textfields, do
value='<%= Session.Contents("elementname") %>'

Did you use the appropriate name for "elementname"?
