' Assumes:Fieldgrabber.asp - a simple, time saving utility.
Create a file named fieldgrabber.asp and paste in this code.
On a form page where you are submitting, make the action 
fieldgrabber.asp and the method post. All the field field names 
will print out in a copy-and-paste ready format.
Paste the results into the actual page you want to gather 
your form info, change the action back to the actual page, 
and you're ready.
