Default 2 buttons going to same ASP page

    I have an Instructor's form in which the instructor may either add a student to the database by clicking on an "Add Student" button, or select a particular report on the student to view from a drop-down and click a "View Report" button.
    I would like to have both buttons go to the same ASP page and have the ASP page determine whether to display the "New Student" form or to access the database to create the appropriate report. The buttons each have different names, so I what I'd like to do is figure out which button was pressed. Can I do this? And if so, how do I find out which button was pressed?

You can have both the buttons with type="submit" on single form.

Then on top of your page check which value comes on form submit.

IF request.form("ADD") = "itsvalue" Then
    'code to add student

IF request.form("View") = "itsvalue" Then
    'code to View report
"itsvalue" refers to the value that you defined in the value attribute of the <input> tag.

This is a sample of code that should help you.
