Request.Form returns empty

Hello Experts,

Can anyone give me any ideas why would Request.Form not return anything? All my control names are spelled correctly (I used copy/paste), but I cannot think of what could be the issue?

I have recently installed Visual Studio 2010 on my computer, could that be conflicting in any way? What else can I check?

Thank you,

You would have to show us your code for us to help you figure what is wrong.

As long as you have something like this, you should be good to go.
However, like Dave pointed out, if you do have code like this, then we will need to see and no more.

(Just copy and paste into a new file, name it Q_27993404.asp
And then run it.

<%getSub = request.Form("Submit")
if request.Form("Submit")="Send Data" then
fname = request.Form("FName")
lname = request.Form("LName")
response.Write "You entered <strong>"&fname&" "&lname&"</strong> as your name"
end if

The best thing that I can suggest is that you try bit by bit.

Try the first field by itself.

make sure that it is going through on its own, and then move on from there.

Example:
strAction = Request.QueryString("action")
response.write strAction

See what happens, have it by itself,

strAction = Request.QueryString("action") works as i get
tax1 =
On my screen, meaning Li. 63 executes

As for the JIT, I am not sure if it will have anything to do with it.
As I had Visual Studio 2010 installed back mid-last year, and did not experience any issues with my classic ASP projects.

Wayne BarronCommented:
So you are saying the running the test works, and you get back a result.
If that is true, then try it with your header of the file, and then include the protection
strAction = Injection(Request.QueryString("action"))
And try it again.
You want to test everything, to make sure that it all passes.
Then you can start looking into your other code on that page, to see if something else is stopping it from going through.

p.s.
It seems we are posting on top of each others comments :)

I removed   enctype="multipart/form-data" and it worked.

Sometimes it is the little things.
Do you know what you was using that for?
As it might be needed on something, however, you can place it elsewhere, besides where you initially had it at.

Glad you got it working.
