in order to do this seamlessly, you will need to use some javascript or ajax. Remember that asp runs on the server, not the browser, so when the user makes a selection there is no obvious way for the server to know and execute any code. Does this suggest anything to you?

Hi Jared,

thank you for your suggestion. I tried with xmlhttprequest to call another page. However, the 2nd pages failed to get the value that user's selection in 1st page.

do i use wrongly?
