HiI have 6 textboxes on a form, I want to loop through them and if there is a value I want to write this back to a database.

How can I concatenate say "txtAnswer" & 1 to give me txtAnswer1 - a text box name on y form , so I can get the value like this b = txtAnswer1.text.

Or is there another (better) way to loop through the form contols.

  Dim txtAns as TextBox
  txtAns=Ctype(Page.FindControl("txtAnswer" & i), TextBox)
 
 ' remaining your code here during iteration...

Try this, it uses the Control property to loop through the form controls:
