I have a form that collects personal information and then based on one field selection (field: RequestType), additional data fields are displayed and eventually all data is sent to an MSAccess database. I do not understand how to display the additional data on the same page after the selection of the RequestType. I did have the form working when the additional request types were not needed.

Code is attached.

You will want to do this client side although you could do it sever side but that would be a page refresh.  This is a more modern way.

If you want to do it server side, you would add each item in a separate form.

<form name="form1">

Main form info

</form>
<%
if request.form("somevalue")="Book" then
%> 
<form name="book">
Book Form
</form>
<%end if%>
