Try changing line 1 in the saving code from

Dim dorkks = CType(newtables.FindControl("TextBoxID" + t.ToString), TextBox)

To

Dim dorkks as Textbox = CType(newtables.FindControl("TextBoxID" + t.ToString), TextBox)

and line 3 in the saving code from

Dim doSqlString As String = "INSERT INTO answer (qid, answer) VALUES ('" & cccdatareader.Item("qid") & "', '" & dorkks.ToString & "')"

To


Dim doSqlString As String = "INSERT INTO answer (qid, answer) VALUES ('" & cccdatareader.Item("qid") & "', '" & dorkks.Text & "')"

looks like the default property is the control name rather than it "value"

dorkks.value.tostring?
