    Angry Form won't post to database.

    Hi there - I need some help with my code if you all might be so kind. Here is the scope - I have created a 2 page database app that will create and show work orders when I create them. I am currently running this on my home IIS but will be getting ready to upload to my web server. See the first page - I had it posting to the database, but now since I have created the second page that displays the results of the database - the posting page won't post.

    Here is the code of the posting page (can you show me what I am doing wrong? Please bear in mind I am somewhat programming challenged as I do not speak tech in this way. So please make your explanation easy to follow if you could.

    Okay - here is my code for my form page:

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <title>Ekho3 Technology Work Orders</title>
    <style type="text/css">
    body,td,th {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 10px;
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/JavaScript">
    function MM_reloadPage(init) { //reloads the window if Nav4 resized
    if (init==true) with (navigator) {if ((appName=="Netscape")&&(parseInt(appVersion)==4)) {
    document.MM_pgW=innerWidth; document.MM_pgH=innerHeight; onresize=MM_reloadPage; }}
    else if (innerWidth!=document.MM_pgW || innerHeight!=document.MM_pgH) location.reload();
    <link href="style/css.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
    <style type="text/css">

    Default By the way...

    Not sure if I mentioned, but the form was working fine until I created the second page that shows me the results of the database. Now it won't work. I don't understand if something in this second page screwed things up for the first. I am coding in Dreamweaver too.
