How do I code for a submit button when I have radio buttons and
option group lists?

Do I use If then else?

I have an option group list: lstdepartment
I have radio button group: radReadWrite

and a submit button btnsubmit

So I want to do stuff like this:
If RadRead and lstPress is selected, goto "page2"
If RadRead and lstMailRoom is sele4cted goto "page3" etc. when the
button is pressed

how would I do this? where do I put the code?? what would the code be
for something like this?

You tell your receiving script what to do. You have not yet specified
one it the 'action' attribute:
<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">
and you only need *one* form.

In the action script. Write it to read the values for each id. Type of
code depends on the language used in your script.

Next time, post a URL instead of code.

You put the code in the receiving server-side script. The PHP, CGI, ASP,
CFM.... whatever language your use that *should* be listes in the form's
ACTION attribute.

You also have 3 independent forms here. I don't think that is what you
want. Only the name|value pairs within the form that is submitted is

Take care,
