set server side vbscript variable from client side javascript?

I have a variable I have set using client side javascript ..

when I open another window, is there any way I can set a server side vbscript variable from that javascript variable?

i'm using iframes when i load the asp pages, so i could access that variable in javascript like this:

window.parent.parent.myVariable

but can I somehow take that variable and assign it to a vbscript variable?

Thanks,

There is basically two ways of sending values from the client side to the server side, either in the query string, or in a form.

Query string:

---javascript on first page---
var value=42;
window.open('Page2.asp?Param='+value,'_blank');

---Page2.asp---
<%
Value=Request.Querystring("Param")
%>

Form:

---first page---
<form name="TestForm" action="Page2.asp">
<input type="hidden" name="HiddenField" value="">
</form>
<script>
value=42;
document.TestForm.HiddenField.value=value;
document.TestForm.submit();
</script>

---Page2.asp--
<%
Value=Request.Form("HiddenField")
%>

well, i understand how those two work, but it didn't provide the results i wanted ..

there is a 3rd option for passing variables from javascript to vbscript ... cookies.  i used that.

thanks,
