Saving Form Data when Leaving Page
Posted on 2014-03-04
Hopefully, I can explain this question clearly. I have a membership form (yes, same old membership form) that allows the applicant to specify a membership type, buy a few different items and make donation(s). After making the selection(s), there is an option to "Add to Cart" or go directly to PayPal for payment. If "Add to Cart" is select the selection(s) are stored in a PayPal form and a second membership with the optional selection may be made. Up to 5 memberships are allowed. This process has been working for some years. We are now updating our process to handle renewals. The applicant's information is retrieved from an Access database.
My quandary is that the organization wants the form to work for up to 5 renewals as it always has for memberships. In order to handle the renewal, I'm creating a master selection list based on last name. The associated member ID is used to retrieve the applicant's renewal information. If I process one membership, save the data, display a last name member list for the next renewal, I, of course, lose the saved membership information. Is there a solution for this?
I've considered trying to display the last name selection list on the membership form, but have not figured out how to do this yet. It appears it might work if I could do a "Back" but I don't see a way to click on the selected name and accomplish a "Back."
Here is the list link that is clicked on:
<td height="40" align="center" class="links"><a href="membershipAssign2.asp?<%= Server.HTMLEncode(MM_keepNone) & MM_joinChar(MM_keepNone) & "memberID=" & rsMembers.Fields.Item("memberID").Value %>"><%=(rsMembers.Fields.Item("memberID").Value)%></a></td>
