Preventing Bots from executing my asp page.

Preventing Bots from executing my asp page.

Preventing Bots from executing my asp page.

Hi, I have an asp script which pulls data from my another page and sends the data to my mail server. I notice from time to time that I get a blank form, even though I have validation on the page that supplies that data. This is because the asp page is getting executed by itself, I presume their are bots out there, which access the page and I get a blank form submission. How do I prevent this, is there a way to hide the page from the bots using some code or a way of preventing it from being executed as a url - running iis. thanks.

RE: Preventing Bots from executing my asp page.

Check for the POST collection having a value before processing/

CODE --> vbscript

if Request.form("submit")<>"" then
       'process form data
       'do nothing
end if
