Receive HTTP POST requests

I need to receive HTTP POST requests, I thought I had it working but it turns out I was receiving GET instead of post. I have no experience in this and I am on quite a tight deadline.

What is the easiest way for me to get the posted data in to a text file? I was using a simple ASP code in IIS for the GET.


<%
Dim TN,FN,SN,RF, stext

Dim fs, file

fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
file=fs.CreateTextFile("C:\approvedindex\upload\" & request.querystring("Reference") & ".txt",true)

TN = request.querystring("TradingName")
FN = request.querystring("firstname")
SN = request.querystring("surname")
RF = request.querystring("Reference")

file.write(TN)
file.write(",")
file.write(FN)
file.write(",")
file.write(SN)
file.write(",")
file.write(RF)


file.close
file=nothing
fs=nothing
 %>
Post Completed

Request.Querystring is accessing data from a HTTP GET.  You want to use Request.Form, Microsoft reference link:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms525985(v=vs.90).aspx

Just need to replace Request.Querystring  with Request.Form in the script.  This all assumes that the action is actually a HTTP POST.  If the inbound HTTP request is using a URL with querystrings, the Form collection will not work.

If it's POST, it should be 'Request.Form' instead of 'request.querystring'.  More info here: http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_inputforms.asp

So if I just update anything that says request.QueryString to request.form it should work the way it is?

Yes.  Provided that the HTTP request is really arriving at the server as a POST.

Most likely, I don't see any reason it shouldn't.

Great, updated the file and made a sample form post and it works. I will split between you as you have both been helpful.
