Hi,

I have an ASP page called "one.asp" that will be called from 2 other ASP pages.  How do I determine which ASP page is calling my "one.asp" so I can show different contents depending on which page the user came from

Dim szReferrer
'THIS TELLS YOU WHICH PAGE CALLED THIS PAGE
szReferrer = Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFERER")
%>

the referrer works when you use the <a href="data.asp"></a> method and may not pass thru if you programmatically load the asp page.
