    Yup, easiest way to do this is through remote scripting + a bit of javascript. In the onchange event of the drop-down (or onblur for a text box) you would call a javascript function which could use an asp page (through remote scripting) as a processor for the passed information, which would then be fed back into the page (again using DHTML). Alternatively, you could pass the variable to an asp page in a hidden frame which again processes and returns information (this is what we do in sites such as, which being based on Flash cannot refresh entire page content)<BR>
