You can't pass dynamic values with server.execute, so you cqan't pass a querystring
Online documentation is wrong..plz follow this link to what MS has to say:

YOu cannot pass arguments to a file being executed through the Server.Execute method. The querystring of the calling file is available inside the the file being called.

so if inside a.asp?xyz=1

you say Server.Execute(thisfile.asp) then inside of thisfile.asp you can say
Request("xyz") and it will return 1

.execute excutes the contents of a page in another page (much like calling a function) so using response.redirect might not be the way. depending on how you are formatting.
could you explain a little more as to what ur tryinmg to acheive?
thx

Continue to use the server.execute method....but leave off the querystring variables... instead create a local variable before doing the server.execute....your "product_form.asp" will then have access to that variable.

example...

mode="add"
Server.Execute("product_form.asp")

now in your product_form.asp you can use the "mode" variable without doing anything like Request.Querystring...just use the variable as if you were in the origional page

hope that helps

Are you working with asp2.0 or asp 3.0
Asp 2.0 does not support this method. It is supported on asp 3.0.
Hope it helps finds the error.

Thanks

May i just comment that response.Redirect is not an altewrnative of server.execute..server.execute executes a page as if it were part of the original page..just like a subroutine..
