Extracting varibles from the URL

I am passing varibles from one page to the next using the URL. For example \\server\page1?order=12345. The Front page database component uses this varible just fine. How can I use it in a VBScript.

RE: Extracting varibles from the URL

You use the querystring collection to access this information. The collection will contain an entry for each value/data pair passed in the url.

In the following example, the variable 'ordernum' will contain the value '12345'

dim ordernum
ordernum = Request.Querystring("order")
