Adding Text Boxes to New Page


M

MRupel

Hello,

I am trying to create a page where there are 3 text boxes. If another page
is needed I need for a new page to be created with the same 3 text boxes and
if another page is needed etc. Here is the code I have.....but it is
putting the 3 new text boxes on page 1 and creates a new blank page.

What am I doing wrong?
