I'm pretty sure there is. I'm not sure why you are changing the name of the
form field. Why not:

<input type="skillcode" value="<%Response.Write skillcodefromDB%>">
<input type="text" name="skilldesc" value="<%Response.Write

Or, are you allowing the user to update multiple descriptions at one time?
