Hi All,

Thanks every one for helping me with trivial questions out here.I have one more here.

I would like to have a button "edit" that has the functionality on being pressed would be able to direct to a page with the filled values , so that the user can edit the form and resubmit it.

I have tried the following code , but it doesnt seem to have that effect.Kindly help me out with regrds to this.



Many thanks
AS

You have an issue with your JavaScript.

It should read:
oclick="javascript:history.back(1);return flase;">

I really am not sure why you are using a submit button. Shouldn't it be a normal button?

Hi Eric,

Thanks for your answer.It is true that it should not be a submit button, it just should be a button.

The solution did work here.

Many Thanks
