QueryString items are string-type variants in ASP and even if their content
is the same as a name of a variable, they're still a string.  But, you could
try VBScript's Eval function or Execute Statement.


Try this in page2.asp:

Const C_Err1 = "You suck and the form field is blank. Please reenter it."
Const C_Err2 = "You're ugly, please fix that."

Response.Write("C_Err2 = " & C_Err2 & "<br />")

Response.Write("Request(&quot;errMsg&quot;) = " & Request("errMsg") & "<br


Response.Write("Eval(Request(&quot;errMsg&quot;) = " &
Eval(Request("errMsg")) & "<br />")
