I'm porting over an Access DB to SQL7 and a web browser front end. This is my first time at such a project and its going suprisingly well considering all the horrors I read about fields in Access not translating to SQL easily etc.

I'm now in the process of writing ASP pages to view and edit the data. View has been quiet easy.

On my edit pages I need some validation and corrections before I commit the update to the DB. On one such form I have a set of simple Yes No radio buttons a text field and a submit and cancel button. All my code works apart from...


sub txtDetailRec_onlostfocus()

    Dim strDetailRec
    strDetailRec = document.Ack1.txtDetailRec
    strDetailRec = Trim(strDetailRec)
    document.Ack1.txtDetailRec.value = strDetailRec
end sub
Where Ack1 is the name of the form on the page
      txtDetailRec is the input textbox

What I want to happen is when the txtDetailRec texbox has lost its focus any text it contains gets trimmed.

I would appreciate any help.
