Let me clarify,
after my form has been submitted I have a page that would say your data has been posted.  underneath that I would like to have a text link that once pressed would carry over some variables that were created on the previously submitted form, so they can then be used as hidden fields used to update a table on the new page via a form.

Now I have tried all Basic ways of carrying over a variable ie <input type="hidden/text" name="My field" value="#previously created#">

that did not work..

so I tried creating a query that would pull that value out of the db and then carrying it over with the text link. that did not work.  if any one can show me the syntax or pointme in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

You have 3 options:

1. Set the information  in Session and retrieve it on the next page.

2. Set the information as hidden params in a form (that is invisible) but make the form submit via clicking the link:
<a href="javascript:void(0);" onClick="document.myHiddenForm.submit();">Click to Continue</a>

3. URL Encode the vars in the  link:

Create a list of var and value combos.

<a href="nextpage.cfm?<CFOUTPUT>#URLENCODE(mylist)#</CFOUTPUT>">Click to Continue</a>

Or you could just pass the variable through the URL as such:

<a href="GoTopage.cfm?data1=<cfoutput>#data1# </cfoutput> &data2=<cfoutput>#data2#</cfoutput>
&data3=<cfoutput>#data3#</cfoutput> "> link text </a>
Etc.

>>Yup, that was my 3rd option.

  Except I am just doing it manually, without using #URLENCODE(mylist)#, so it is not EXACTLY the same way of doing it.  :>)
