Form Field/ Form Submit Problems (probably an easy answer...)

P: n/a
Hey Everyone..

I have a form that has approximately 7 text fields and 1 checkbox.
Generally when this form is submitted(to itself BTW) it works fine,
however, when the checkbox is only field that has been
modified/clicked the form doesn't always submit. When it does work, a
Stored procedure is passed form variables and updates to the db are
made. When it doesn't, its as if the form wasn't submitted, it
reloads and resets the page, but the stored procedure isn't triggered.
Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks..

What makes you think it's not submitting? Code?

Perhaps if you showed your code, we would have a chance of assisting you.
As it is, I can only guess your problem is a condition branch that is
keeping your update code from
executing.

Thanks for the responses..

The reason why I don't think its submitting is because when I run SQL
profiler, on a normal Submit, I can see the stored procedure hit the db
and when it doesnt seem to work, the form looks like it submits but then
the SP never gets triggered(this happens about 2 out of three tries when
only the checkbox is changed). Honestly, I'm not actually sure that is
not submitting, just that its not firing off the SP unless one of the
text fields is modified.

I have cut and pasted the code below. Thanks again...

You have all of your code in IFs. Maybe none of the conditions is true.
What does this do?

IF Request.form("SubmitType")="add" then
response.write "Submit time is add."
end if

if Request.form("SubmitType")="edit" then
response.write "Submit type is edit."
end if
IF Request.form("SubmitType")="update" then
response.write "Submit type is update."
end if

'delete a record
IF Request.form("SubmitType")="delete" then
response.write "Submit type is "delete."
end if
IF Request.form("SubmitType")="cancel" then
response.write "Submit type is cancel."
end if
