Passing data? $_GET (default form action) will pass data in the query string (eg: pypage.html?stuff=1&this=2) Data is accessible in the receiving script by referencing the $_GET array $_POST <form action="post"...> will pass data errr...not in the query string and is accessible in the receiving script by referencing the $_POST array For persistent use, SESSION data is your friend. Set session vars by using $_SESSION['myvar'] = $someValue. Hopefully it's like riding a bike and after a while it'll all start coming back to ya!

I need to pass about 4 to 8 pieces of information between two pages. I need to allow them to enter on one page and then use that info on any number of several forms. The first page looks something like this. PLEASE ENTER STUFF BELOW: Item One: . Item Last: PLEASE SELECT FORM(S) BELOW Form 1 . Form Last Each form opens a new window. All of the items are in text boxes. I use PHP in Dreamweaver 8. Please help. Ken _________________________________________________________________ Express yourself instantly with MSN Messenger!
