I use FP98 to create the webpage, VB5 to write the cgi scripts and Access 97 to keep the data.  I have a webpage which displays the result after querying the database.  The result will have a hyperlink to another webpage.  So, how do I pass the result (data from database) to the final webpage?  Is it possible to use simple html to do this?  

Thanks in advance...

you cant use html to do this. you have to use cgi or asp and you can do it two ways....
you can do hidden fields that get submitted through a form or passed through get in the query string...(...cgi?variable=blah+..)

you can start this by doing javascript and "myform.submit" after triggering an event

I do like this,
<a href="http://default/sample.htm?Data1=" & rs.Fields("Data1") & "&Data2=" &             rs.Fields("Data2") & "&Data3=" & rs.Fields("Data3")  target="blank">

But the final webpage can only get the value of Data1, it can't get the others.  If my Data1 has the value of "My data", the final webpage gets only 'My', but no 'data'.  Please help...

You will need to use a server-side script language such as ASP (Active Server Pages) which looks like you are doing.  If you will email me the database and you ASP pages, I will take a look for you.  masseym@javanet.com

Another Solution is to create a cookie on the users machine, then when the next page loads the page can read this data from the cookie, and then delete the cookie!

To MasseyM,
actually I've tried using asp to pass variables and it works beautifully, but I must use VB to write the cgi for this project I'm doing...anyway, thanks!

You can always use layers and the <DIV> commands... just hide the information until you need it again... I amnot and expert in this, but I know many here that are.

your problem lies in the spaces that are present in the query string, like "xyz.html?a=My Data&b=Your Data" will only pass
"a=My". what you need to pass is "xyz.html?a=My+Data&b=Your+Data"
which will keep the entire string intact. use javascript to replace space by '+' and it will work.
