      sql=sql & "ext=" & Request.Form("ext") & ","
      sql=sql & "res=" & Request.Form("res") & ","

elseif Request.Form("action")="Delete" then

   sql="DELETE FROM staff_cont WHERE name='" & nm1 &"'"
   conn.Execute sql
   conn.Execute sql,Recordsaffected
if err > 0 then
   Response.Write("You do not have permission to delete a record from this database!")
   Response.Write("Record " & nm1 & " was deleted.")
end if
Response.Write("Deleting records has been disabled from this demo")
end if

Send a message via AIM to urtrivedi

first keep button as simple button and not submit
when ever user clicks that button then just call one javascript function as following
function btnupdate_click()
    if (confirm('are you sure you want to update'))
