I am generally a do it yourself guy, and I do want to learn more about ASP, however I am desperate for help with a nagging issue. I am a ColdFusion programmer who was tasked with learning ASP/Java to create a webpage that uses Manifold's IMS (Internet Map Server).

I have done this by Frankenstiening to "sample" pages from Manifold's website into an interactive map that displays an advertisers location dynamically based on the IMS engine creating Lat/Lon coordinates (on the fly) fron the advertisers address (which I keep in a MSSQL db).

The problem is with the values the function (called 'geocodeRaw') gets. They are passed to another ASP page, then to the IMS server to actually create the map image, and the div table that labels the location. The form (currently) does two things.

1) When you select the advertiser from the dropdown the onChange="geocodeRaw();" is called, which does the IMS function, doing some math and collecting the lat/long values and the viewport (scale) values - What it Does not do is submit the hidden values of the form which are needed to "submit" and create the correct map image.

2) When you hit "Display" (the submit button) it actually submits the form which NOW has been evaluated (by onChange="geocodeRaw();) with several key values, then page reloads and redraws correctly.

Basically I need the function to re-evaluate all the hidden fields with the returned data, then submit the form in one step.

If this sounds hard to understand, I agree! This is why I need help so badly, I have literally been working with ASP for less than a week.

Please see for a *working* example. Again, choose adv (like ABC Appliance), the page will "geocode" and bring up details, then hit "display" and their map will display. Note the values at the top and you can see what values are being passed and when.

This is going to be a big deal for us, and the boss is hot for the completion, so any help will be very appreciated!
Beware the n00b...Hey, thats me!
