QueryString by Bullschmidt
Posted: 23 May 03 (Edited 23 May 03)

Example URL with a querystring:
http://www.mysite.com/mydir/mypg.asp?myvar1=hey&myvar2=ho

Because a variable might contain some odd characters like spaces, it's usually a good idea to use Server.URLEncode when creating a querystring from a variable:
<a href="http://www.mysite.com/mypage?id=<%=Server.URLEncode(objRS("MyIDFldFromDB")) %>">objRS("MyIDFldFromDB")</a>

And in the page that is opened you can use Request.QueryString("id") to get the value of id.
