I have "copied" the html for a logon screen webpage. It works great and can access the database with the usernames and passwords. However, when entering data for the login, one cannot backspace, if you make an error you must highlight and retype. I believe the code is this <input name="UID" type="text" size="20"> is there some way to adjust this/add to it to allow for backspace?

There is nothing wrong with the piece of code that you have provided. This code does not restrict backspaces. Please provide more insight into the issue.

Okay, here is the complete code, see if you can see the problem. It's a bother.. Thanks!

<% @language="vbscript" %>
<!--#include virtual="/logon/_private/logon.inc"-->
<%
  ' Was this page posted to?
  If UCase(Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_METHOD")) = "POST" Then
    ' If so, check the username/password that was entered.
    If ComparePassword(Request("UID"),Request("PWD")) Then
      ' If comparison was good, store the user name...
      Session("UID") = Request("UID")
      ' ...and redirect back to the original page.
      Response.Redirect Session("REFERRER")
    End If
  End If

The html portion of the code does not seem to contain any problem that might not allow a backspace. May be I am not getting you problem right. Is it possible to show a demo of the problem?

If you have a script grabbing the individual characters from the keyboard, it also has to grab the backspace and remove one character from the buffer.
