[thelist] Submitting contents of form only once

Have the form point to an ASP file.  Have that ASP file check for the
existence of a cookie -- if it doesn't exist, then set that cookie and
process the form data.  If it does exist, don't do anything.

Subject: [thelist] Submitting contents of form only once

Does anyone know an easy way, using JavaScript and/or ASP, to make a form be
submitted only the first time a user clicks the Submit button? I'm doing a
simple database insert with the contents of a form, and since it's a long
form, users have a tendency to click the Submit button a few times.

Thanks in advance for your help,
