How to populate other fields from first choice on input form

I have an ASP web form that I want to populate fields based on the first
field choice. Example I have 4 fields item, price, delivery, availability. I
have all these items setup in an access table. When a user chooses an option
from the item drop down, the price, delivery, availability will then
populate. I have already made my connection to the database, and created the
drop down for field one from the choices. How do I now populate the
corresponding fields. Any info or helpful links would be greatly appreciated.

Export the details for your products into an XML file to a web folder or
alternatively create an ASP page to generate the products XML dynmically
(although to benefit from client side caching some work with the headers
will be necessary)

Load the URL for the XML into an XML DOM when you page loads. On item
selection lookup the item in the XML and populate the values of the fields
from the XML entry.

I'm just new at this so any help more than appreciated. I have created an email form in which all fields must be completed. If all the fields are not completed "submit" causes a refresh using response.redirect, Problem is allthe fields that were previously filled in are empty. How do I keep the values of the fields on refresh?

I have a listbox named sub1 on an asp page. I need to fill this list with values from a table. These are selected based upon the selection of a value/s in another listbox. It was suggested that I use a hidden iframe on my main page, & carry out the processing inside the frame, using jscript. If I open the page in a browser, & make a selection in the first listbox (named main), the data in the frame appears to be processed correctly, the...

I need this for a client side application - ignore the security consequences for the moment - however my question is, which is more performance effective, or easier on a clients resources? I mean - if I have several <input type=hidden> tags with my values that I can reference, would this have a greater overhead then, for example, having an...

First Post - New member - I've searched the discussions available to no avail. I have, however, learned a few things in doing so. (Great Site -- Thanks) My issue is as follows: Access 2003/WinXP I have created a task tracking database. On the main form, I have placed two combo boxes. The first (cboContact) lists the user that the task is assigned to. record source = SELECT Contacts.ID, Contacts. FROM Contacts ORDER BY Contacts.;

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
