Hi, guys. How are ya?
Do you know how to persist textarea value using ASP?
I did something like this but doesn't work.

code:
<textarea cols="25" rows="2" name="Helpful_Information" value="<%= Request("Helpful_Information")%>"></textarea>



Normally, in the text box, this way works fine. I don't get why it doesn't work for textarea though.
Help please.

Try
<textarea cols="25" rows="2" name="Helpful_Information"><%= Request("Helpful_Information")%></textarea>

The text needs to be between the <textarea> tags. Not as a value.

Yup, there is actually no "value" attribute for a textarea.
