 pass a form from web page to web page

I am trying to do a webpage that has 3 tabs at the top.
Each tab has a form where the user enters data.
(tab 'A' for Client Info, 'B' for Parent Info, 'C' for References)

When the user clicks 'A', they ONLY see the lines for Client Info.
When the user clicks 'B', they ONLY see the lines for Parent Info.
When the user clicks 'C', they ONLY see the lines for Reference Info.

These three parts comprise a whole record of an Access database.
"HOW" can I let the user jump from tab to tab and then be able to click
ADD RECORD or UPDATE RECORD and retain the info from the form
from web page to web page?

Can I pass an entire form from one page to another much like passing a
variable?
(ie: onclick="DoIt.asp"?info=2)???

This is stumping me.  Please help.

 pass a form from web page to web page
Write each form's information to hidden fields in the new page's form; they
will be submitted to the next page with the new information:

=== A.asp ===
<form action="B.asp" method="post">
Client Info stuff:
<input name="Client" type="text" value="Client Info"><br>
<input type="submit" value="Parent Info">
</form>

=== B.asp ===
<form action="C.asp" method="post">
<input name="Client" type="hidden" value="<%= Request.Form("Client") %>">
Parent Info stuff:
<input name="Parent" type="text" value="Parent Info"><br>
<input type="submit" value="Reference Info">
</form>

=== C.asp ===
<form action="D.asp" method="post">
<input name="Client" type="hidden" value="<%= Request.Form("Client") %>">
<input name="Parent" type="hidden" value="<%= Request.Form("Parent") %>">
Reference Info stuff:
<input name="Reference" type="text" value="Reference Info"><br>
<input type="submit" name="Action" value="Add">
<input type="submit" name="Action" value="Update"><br>
</form>

=== D.asp ===
<pre>
   Client Info: <%= Request.Form("Client") %>
   Parent Info: <%= Request.Form("Parent") %>
Reference Info: <%= Request.Form("Reference") %>

        Action: <%= Request.Form("Action") %>
</pre>

Submit the form to the other page and generate hidden fields using a
server side script to hold the data until it is sent back to the
origional.

Another alternative rather than storing all hidden variables in each of the
other pages is to use a single page for all of the tabs (with a single form
and javascript controlling which sections of HTML are displayed).  Two
advantages to using this method:  1) if a new field is added, only 1 page
will need to be modified and 2) this should be more efficient since it may
no longer be necessary to go back to the server whenever a different tab is
selected.

The only trick is that you will have to hide/show the appropriate
information whenever a different tab is selected (show/hide can be
accomplished with CSS applied to <SPAN> tags surrounding what was previously
each individual pages content) .

Good Luck.
