I have got three asp pages , search.asp, update.asp and delete.asp search page has got a form (name of form is form1 and it contains just one textbox "id" and a submit button whose action is update.asp so the submit button takes me to update page where i can do the updation using request.form("id") in my sql command.

now there is also hyperlink on the search.asp which whould lead me to delete.asp, i think i need to explicitly pass the value of "id"'s value in <a> tag using ?. i tried it but couldn,t pass the value.

now the questions are:
1. is it possible to send variables using <a> tag, if yes then how?
2. is there some other method to acheive my goal like instead of using submit button/ hyperlink , should i use response.redirect method (which i had tried actually without any success)

Thanks in advance
sandeep

Hi sandeeptyagi
yes you can pass values to the  next page using the <A> tag
It is something like given below
<A href="delete.asp?varname1=xyz&varname2=abc">link</A>
Where
varname1 will be the variable you will be passing value in and xyz is the value of that variable.
To reteive this in the delete.asp
You can do the following
x=Request.Querystring("varname1")
y=Request.Querystring("varname2")
There you are.....
Tell me if this is working or not ,It should as i am dong my work through this only
About the response.redirect method also you can do the same sort of thing
Response.Redirect "delete.asp?varname1=xyz&varname2=abc"
and same method can be used to retrive data.
All the best

simple
<html>
<head>
<script language="Javescript">
 function test()
{
document.form1.action="update.asp"
document.form1.submit();
}
</script>
</head>
<HTML>
<BODY>
<FORM name=form1 method=post>
<input type="text" name="T1">
<a href="Javascript=test()">click it</a>
</form>
</body>
</html>
in update page you write it
<%
response.write(request.form("T1"))
%>
by clicking the tag the form will submit and you can get the textbox value on other page
you can also get the value of textbox byu sending it in to querystring method

<input id="txtField1">
<a href="delete.asp" onclick="window.open(this.href+'?value='+escape(txtField1.value), '_self'); return false;">submit</a>

abc and xyz are not fixed value but textbox's values. and could be
just anything under the sun.so i cant' write varname1=abc

HTTP Error 404
404 Not Found

this is what i got when clicked the hyperlink. perhaps u have mistyped
the syntax of <a> tag. if so please check it out.

ur code did open a new window but couldn't get me the value.
may be u too mistyped something. so please look at ur code once again.
