I have a web based form containg values typed in by the user. The first value is called noItems, which is outside the form. The form contains a persons name, the number of items,noSub, thay have submitted and their final grade. I need to use noItems and noSub to calulate their prcentage and store it in the grade column of the table. How do I use a command button to, when clicked, go through the data on the table and calculate the final grade(as a percentage for each row? When it is run all the fields just go blank.
my code is below:

<!--#include file="Connections/conn_3_coast.asp" -->
Dim rs_homework
Dim rs_homework_cmd
Dim rs_homework_numRows

Set rs_homework_cmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
rs_homework_cmd.ActiveConnection = MM_conn_3_coast_STRING
rs_homework_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT DISTINCT tblStudent.Name, studentResults.enrolno FROM tblStudent INNER JOIN studentResults ON tblStudent.enrolno = studentResults.enrolno ORDER BY tblStudent.Name" 
rs_homework_cmd.Prepared = true

Set rs_homework = rs_homework_cmd.Execute
rs_homework_numRows = 0
Dim Repeat1__numRows
Dim Repeat1__index

Repeat1__numRows = 25
Repeat1__index = 0
rs_homework_numRows = rs_homework_numRows + Repeat1__numRows

You have unescaped < and > characters in your js code. The web browser is confused by these. Make your js an external .js file, and it might fix this.
