Hi,<BR><BR>I have a form which pulls it&#039;s data from a database. At runtime it creates a hidden variable that contains a cost value per item. When a user enters a quantity, I want the form to calculate the quantity * cost and return it the page (using onChange), but I don&#039;t want it to appear in a text box unless it is absolutely necessary. In effect, I want the asp to write the value statically to the page.<BR><BR>How can I do this?<BR><BR>Regards<BR><BR>Andy
