Yep.  I'm showing all the skill descriptions for the chosen category, and
allowing them to update whichever ones they want.  I then want to save all
the changes.

| I'm pretty sure there is. I'm not sure why you are changing the name of
| form field. Why not:
| <input type="skillcode" value="<%Response.Write skillcodefromDB%>">
| <input type="text" name="skilldesc" value="<%Response.Write
| skilldescfromDB%>">
| Or, are you allowing the user to update multiple descriptions at one time?
