I figured you were either new to programming or new to ASP.NET. If this was classic ASP or PHP I would have re-written it differently. That's why I included the explanation, so that you wouldn't think it was all just a matter of style. Plus if you ask
6 other developers what's wrong with that code they'd give you 6 (probably 7) other version and explanations.
Yes, actually have been programing for about a year now with VB6, am pretty good at VB, though am new to ASP.NET, i thought it was an interesting language to write in so went ahead and tried to write something with it, but i guess it did not work lol.
