<font face='Verdana'>The way to 'save' text field data into a variable is the request.form/request.querystring method.
What you should do is add a form action to the page where you have the text fields and assign a link to another page so on clicking submit you move to another page.
In the page where you are submitting to you must request the values from the previous page.
Firstly within the data input page where you have your fields, check the method attached to the form. If you set it to GET, the variables are sent via the URL string whereas the POST method sends it in the body.
In the next page use the following code:
textArea = request.form("name of your text field here"
- this is if you are using POST
textArea = request.querystring("name of your text field here"
- this is if you are using GET
Hope this helps!
