    I think you have 2 options:<BR><BR>1. Click a button that opens a popup window with the preview, and keep the submit button on the page. The code for the popup would be something like this:<BR>&#060;A href=";preview.asp&#03 9;)"&#062;Preview&#060;/A&#062;<BR>Or<BR><BR>2. You can submit the form to the preview page, but then on the preview page you populate hidden text/input boxes with the values, and then you resubmit the form when the user has finished the preview.

    Default Should be quite easy

    Do I understand correctly that you want to give the user the possibility to choose between a preview button OR submit button?<BR><BR>In case you want to preview THEN submit, it ASP 101 (check ASP in 21 days...)<BR><BR>You said: but as far as I know you can have only one button on a form.<BR>Well, check this first buddy and then we will see if that changes your perspective on this project<BR><BR><BR>Good luck
