    Default Problem with <textarea> in Access databa

    Hey guys,<BR><BR>I have created a form that updates to an Access db and then displays on another asp page. All of the fields update except for the comments which are in a &#060;textare&#062;&#060;/textarea&#062; on the form. It uses GET and I can see the name/value pairs for the comments but they dont show on the display page. Any clues?<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR>Justin

    Default RE: Problem with <textarea> in Access da

    Hi Justin,<BR>I&#039m not sure if this is what you&#039re after. Normally with TextArea, you don&#039t need to fill in a Value field. If you enter one in eg. &#060;textarea name="blah" value=""&#062;&#060;/textarea&#062;, then it won&#039t work. This is if the data isn&#039t reaching your Access DB. If it does reach and you&#039re trying to print it out in a textarea box, try: &#060;textarea name="blah"&#062;&#060;%=RS("blah")%&#062;&#060;/textarea&#062; . Hope that works...
