i have that application in asp that open a recordset and display the results . each screen  display  8 records and the user has a button which is a
hyperlink (to the same page) that send parameters
such as the sql query, the last record that has been shown etc. in IE it works perfectly, in Netscape
somehow it `s not sending the parameters and i get
an error message . i`m adding a piece of code:
 
 <a href="?Param=1&Move=<%=Move%>&Rec=<%=RecNum%>&SQL=<%=sql%>&Gen=<%=GenderStr%>&Mess=<%=SourcePath%>" onmouseover="window.status='';return true"><img src="images/next.jpg" border="0" WIDTH="106" HEIGHT="33" ></a>


here is the error message:

HTTP Error 400

400 Bad Request

Due to malformed syntax, the request could not be understood by the server. The client
should not repeat the request without modifications.


thank you in advance fellows:

Please do this and give us what you get:
<%
Dim sTmp
sTmp = "?Param=1&Move=" & Move & "&Rec= " & RecNum & "&SQL=" & sql & "&Gen=" & GenderStr & "&Mess=" & SourcePath
response.write sTmp

IE will automatically reformat your querystring replacing "illegal" characters like "&" and spaces with their escaped replacements .. for instance an ampersand becomes "%26".
Netscape does not handle this for you.
you have to parse your parameters and do the replacement yourself..  or you can use the post method as an alternative to the querystring..

hijack is right.

Replacing illegal characters is easy. Use Server.UrlEncode for it.

<%=Server.UrlEncode(Move)%>
