Hi,
There are 2 ways either u pass the values through querystring or u can use the session variables, Let u can try any of these as im also new to ASP.....

karthik is correct, the easiest way (least secure method) would be to use request.querystring to pass the variables between pages.

Passing querystrings is simple. Each <input> is given a name and the value of the <input> is the value shown in the querystring. That name/value pair is what you see in the querystring.

For instance:

<input type="text" name="txt1">THIS TEXT</input>

...will produce this in the address bar of the page listed in your <form> tag:

/somepage.asp?txt1=THIS+TEXT&submit=Add

You can also use Session cookies, which is a bit more complex. If you'd really like to learn about Sessions, I suggest reading this: http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_ref_session.asp
