Request.Form is blank?? - ASP Database

    Default Request.Form is blank??

    I am experiencing a strange problem.. I've got a basic form with
    METHOD = POST and ACTION = "saveInput.asp". The form has over approx
    100 fields.

    In saveInput.asp, I am able to sucessully write out the input values..
    For example, Request.Form("userName") returns the appropriate value.

    However, to simply the data retrieval, I read the fieldnames from a
    text file, store the values in an array. Then I loop through the
    array, and do a :

    fieldName = CStr(fieldArray(fieldNum))
    fieldVal = Request.Form(fieldName)

    fieldVal always returns NOTHING.. I know that the fieldNames are read
    properly from the text file. I am able to print out the fieldName
    before extracting the value from Request.Form.

    Any thoughts?

    Hmm. Have you tried manually setting fieldName = "userName" and then
    getting fieldVal? Have you tried using Trim() on fieldName?

    What does this return:

    <%

    fieldName = CStr(fieldArray(fieldNum)

    response.write "The name of the field I'm about to try to pull a value from
    is " & fieldName & ".<br>"
    response.write "True of False: I need to trim the value from the array: " &
    Not (fieldName = Trim(fieldName)) & "<br>"

    response.write request.form(fieldName)

    response.end

    %>
